Fifteen people were injured by the blast at the Bombay Bhel, however, all have since been released from hospital.

The manhunt is still on for two suspects who were caught on camera at the restaurant just before the blast.

Investigators described the first man as being five-foot-10-inches to six-feet tall, mid-20s and having a stocky build. He was last seen wearing dark blue jeans, a dark zip-up hoodie pulled over his head, a light grey baseball hat and black cloth covering his face.
