The New York City Bombing Suspect Has Been Indicted

The man believed to be responsible for the bombings in New York and New Jersey in September has been indicted.

Twenty-eight-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahimi was indicted Wednesday in a federal court in Manhattan on eight counts for the Sept. 17 bombing and attempted bombing in New York City. 

The bomb that detonated in New York's Chelsea neighborhood injured over 30 people and caused millions of dollars in damage. Law enforcement found a second unexploded bomb nearby.
