Law enforcement officials from around New Jersey received a firsthand look at the destruction caused by terrorist explosives.

The Transportation Security Administration conducted a series of demonstrations at Naval Weapons Station Earle in Colts Neck on Thursday.

An explosive-laden electronic device similar to a laptop produced one of the most forceful blasts.

Officials also recreated a shoe bomb, the failed underwear bomb and a letter bomb.

Newark Liberty airport supervisory transportation security specialist Michael Walsh tells the Asbury Park Press the idea is to give many levels of law enforcement officers knowledge about recognizing explosives and the potential for damage.
