New York bomb sus­pect acted alone

The Myanmar Times - - World -

The sus­pect in the bomb­ing this month in New York’s Chelsea neigh­bour­hood ap­pears to have acted on his own, with no con­nec­tion to an ex­trem­ist move­ment, the FBI said. The sus­pect in the Septem­ber 17 bomb­ing that left 31 peo­ple wounded, Ah­mad Khan Ra­hami, was ar­rested in New Jersey two days af­ter the at­tack. “We see so far no in­di­ca­tion of a larger cell or the threat of re­lated at­tacks,” FBI di­rec­tor James Comey tes­ti­fied at a Se­nate com­mit­tee hear­ing. Ra­hami was wounded in a shootout with po­lice as they closed in to ar­rest him. He has re­mained hos­pi­talised and is un­able to ap­pear be­fore a judge, ac­cord­ing to the New Jersey pros­e­cu­tor’s of­fice.
