SHOW TRANSCRIPT

On Tuesday, a jury found New York City subway bomber Akayed Ullah guilty on terrorism charges.

Authorities say the 28-year-old Bangladeshi man detonated a bomb that was strapped to his body in a subway walkway tunnel during morning rush hour last December. They say he was inspired by ISIS to carry out the attack and did so, in part, because of the U.S. government's policies in the Middle East. 

At least six people were injured, including Ullah.

The jury found him guilty on six counts, including use of a weapon of mass destruction and providing material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization. 

Ullah is scheduled to be sentenced in April and faces a possible sentence of life in prison.
