Five men, who sources say the FBI believes may have a connection to the bombings in Chelsea, were taken into custody in a joint operation by the FBI and the NYPD, the New York Post reported.

It is believed that the men were on their way to JFK airport when they were stopped, according to the Post.

Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera said he had an “unimpeachable source” that told him the five men were of Afghan descent.

The arrest occurred around the same time several homemade IEDs were found, and one exploded, in nearby Elizabeth NJ.

Some witnesses reported that the men who were arrested were donned in traditional Arab garb.
