New York City terror suspect facing federal charges, USA attorney office says

Ullah, 27, was the only person seriously hurt in the December 11 attack.

Ullah suffered lacerations and burns to his hand and stomach in the bombing, authorities said.

Akayed Ullah, a Bangladeshi man who attempted to detonate a homemade bomb strapped to his body at a NY commuter hub during morning rush hour is seen in this handout photo received December 11, 2017.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called the explosion "an attempted terrorist attack".

Trump expresses openness to talk to North Korea
Kim has, in response, aggressively threatened to tame Trump with fire, calling Trump a " dotard " and "old lunatic". When asked whether he has spoken directly with Kim, Trump declined to comment.

The Manhattan US Attorney's Office says Ullah wanted to kill as many victims as possible when he set off a low-tech pipe bomb while walking through a subway passageway near the bus terminal. Inside Ullah's passport, which was recovered from his home, was a handwritten note that read, "O AMERICA, DIE IN YOUR RAGE", according to the complaint.

Akayed Ullah, 27, faces charges that include supporting a foreign terrorist organization, using a weapon of mass destruction and carrying out a terrorist attack against a mass transit system, according to an indictment filed in federal court in Manhattan.

Addressing reporters today, Ullah's attorney Amy Gallicchio emphasized the importance of due process. According to US attorney Geoffrey S. Berman, Ullah could get life in prison.

Emotions ran high at the time of Ullah's arrest, which occurred in the middle of the holiday season and quickly fed the political machine. He faces life in prison if convicted.
