US Grand Jury Indicts 27-Year-Old Bangladeshi Man Accused Of Manhattan Terror Attack

The terror suspect told investigators he chose the subway station near the Port Authority in New York City because of the Christmas-themed posters hanging on the walls.

According to prosecutors, Ullah attempted to detonate a pipe bomb secured to his body in a pedestrian tunnel in the subway station in Manhattan's Times Square that is connected to the sprawling Port Authority Bus Terminal on the morning of December 11.

Ullah was indicted Wednesday on six counts, including attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to bomb a place of public use and a public transportation system.

Ullah was the only person seriously hurt on December 11 when the bomb went off in a corridor linking the subway to Manhattan's Port Authority bus terminal.

He said he had been inspired by ISIS attacks on Christmas markets in Europe, and was looking to retaliate for USA airstrikes in Syria, according to The New York Times. He answered, "Yes." When asked for his plea, Ullah responded, "At this moment, not guilty". He made his first court appearance from his hospital room via a video link and later was transferred to the federal jail in Manhattan.

She said Ullah recently had some stitches removed but had others that were still causing him a "great deal of discomfort".




Ullah has been in the United States since 2011 as a result of chain migration, authorities said.

Ullah was previously charged in a criminal complaint filed by prosecutors shortly after his arrest last month.

The judge said he may set a trial date at the next hearing, which was set for April 13.

Federal prosecutors say Ullah addressed a message to the President Trump alongside a note that pledged his allegiance to ISIS. The president later demanded tightened immigration rules.

"Less than one month ago, during the holiday rush hour, Akayed Ullah allegedly detonated a bomb in a major transit hub of New York City", U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in a press release. He was arrested soon after the pipe bomb failed to fully explode, though he was initially hospitalized after suffering burns.
