Manhattan Bomber Sentenced to Life in Prison for 2016 Blast Injuring 30

Ahmad Khan Rahimi an Afghan-born U.S. citizen accused of planting bombs in New York and New Jersey appears in Union County Superior Court for a hearing in Elizabeth New Jersey

A year earlier, in September 2016, Rahimi transported two improvised pressure-cooker bombs - similar to those used in the Boston marathon bombing in April 2013 - from New Jersey to NY, placing both in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, authorities said.

He said he doesn't "harbor hate for anyone".

Rahimi was also ordered to pay $563,000 to victims.

"I don't harbour hatred towards anyone", Ahmad Khan Rahimi said in a courtroom packed with spectators, including some of the people who were injured when one of his bombs exploded on Sep.

The third bomb was found four blocks north at 27th Street.

In addition to the bombs in Manhattan, Rahimi was accused of planting a bomb on the route of a charity running race in New Jersey, which exploded without injuring anyone, and shooting at New Jersey police before being captured. His acts led to a two-day manhunt that ended when he was shot several times. No police were injured.

While speaking in court Rahimi placed blame on the Federal Bureau of Investigation for not acting on his father's warning.

Trudeau says he shouldn't make stupid jokes in public
He noted the two nations' economies are so interlinked that Canada wants a good deal with the U.S. Trudeau is due to give a speech in Chicago on Wednesday to sell the merits of bilateral trade.

He described how his father went to law enforcement on multiple occasions to report suspicious behavior he had seen in his son, but ultimately felt let down.

Mohammad Rahimi, told NBC New York on Monday that he told the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2014 that he was anxious his son might have been radicalized.

Late past year, Rahimi began trying to radicalize prisoners at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, prosecutors say.

"He has shown no remorse", Crowley said".

Rahimi, prosecutors said, gave inmates copies of terrorist propaganda and jihadist materials, including speeches and lectures by al-Qaida founder Osama bin Laden and Anwar al-Awlaki, a USA -born cleric who inspired attacks on America and was killed in a US airstrike in September 2011.

Rahami also allowed some inmates to view materials on his laptop or provided electronic copies as he spread The Book of Jihad, bomb-making instructions and various issues of a propaganda magazine, the court heard.

Police arrested Rahimi on September 19, 2016, after a shootout outside the Linden, New Jersey, doorway where Rahimi had been sleeping. "You sit down and laugh", Nelson, 48, said. She's still being treated for muscle spasms in her back. "You have no remorse for what you did".
