Times Square bomb suspect to face court

FAISAL Shahzad, the man accused of attempting to detonate a car bomb in New York City’s Times Square, was expected to appear in Manhattan federal court today, the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York said.

Shahzad is charged with five counts, including attempted use of weapons of mass destruction, attempting acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries and transporting and receiving explosives.

The US attorney’s office said that Shahzad, a Pakistani-born US citizen, had “provided valuable intelligence from which further investigative action has been taken”.
