New York bomb suspect acted alone
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.
