Afghan charged with bombings in NY, New Jersey

Bombs planted by the Afghanistan-born naturalized US citizen in Chelsea and at least two locations in New Jersey left 31 people injured.

The FBI said on Wednesday that it wanted to speak with two men seen in surveillance footage picking up a second bag containing a pressure-cooker bomb believed to be planted by Rahami in Chelsea on Saturday night. But the father later told investigators he just meant his son was hanging out with the wrong crowd, the officials said.

According to police, Rahami left his fingerprints on an the unexploded bomb found four blocks away from the Chelsea explosion, a federal criminal complaint stated.

"He has been held and questioned by federal law enforcement agents since his arrest, " Patton wrote. "The Sixth Amendment requires that he be given access to counsel on the federal charges, and that he be presented without delay".

Rahami's wife voluntarily met with U.S. law enforcement officials while in the United Arab Emirates and voluntarily gave a statement, a law enforcement official said.

The FBI looked into NY bombing suspect Ahmad Khan Rahami two years ago after his father expressed concerns his son might be a terrorist, law enforcement officials said Tuesday. Police said they haven't yet interviewed Rahami.

William Sweeney, the FBI's assistant director in NY, said on Monday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had gotten a report of a domestic incident involving Rahami some time ago, but the allegations had been recanted, and "there's nothing to indicate that now he was on our radar".

"The video depicts the lighting of the fuse, a loud noise and flames, followed by billowing smoke and laughter, " the court documents state.

The official said authorities are attempting to determine whether the person who recorded the video had specific knowledge of Rahami's alleged plan.

Rahami, in parts of his journal, praised "Brother" Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader slain in a 2011 US raid in Pakistan; Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Muslim cleric and leading al-Qaeda propagandist who was killed in a 2011 US drone strike in Yemen; and Nidal Hasan, the US Army psychiatrist who shot dead 13 people and wounded 32 at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009. "Death to Your OPRESSION".

Rahami remains unconscious at a New Jersey hospital.

.

Nor were Afghan intelligence officials aware of either Rahami or his family, said Mohammad Masoom Stanekzai, director-general of the Afghan National Directorate of Security.
