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

Akayed Ullah indicted for NY explosion

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".

Saints hold off Panthers to secure wild playoff win, 31-26
Penalties included coach Sean Payton and then-defensive coordinator Gregg Williams suspended for the entire 2012 season. Both players caught highlight-reel touchdowns in the fourth quarter to give the Panthers a chance to win at the end.

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.

Turkey issues travel warning for US
Turkey has warned its citizens about traveling to the United States, in retaliation for a new U.S. travel advisory about Turkey. The Turkish government is angry at the USA refusal to extradite Fethullah Gulen, a cleric it blames for a coup attempt in 2016.

"In selecting this time and place", Berman said, "Ullah's alleged objective in the Port Authority bombing was painfully clear: to inflict as much damage as possible, and to strike fear into the hearts of New Yorkers in the name of ISIS".

U.S. District Judge Richard Sullivan has given the parties three months to share evidence before the next hearing on April 13.

Assistant U.S. Attorney George Turner estimated that any eventual trial would likely last roughly two weeks.
