Times Square bomb suspect indicted

Posted:

NEW YORK (WKOW) -- Faisal Shahzad, the man police say was behind the botched Times Square bombing on May 1, has been indicted on terrorism and weapons charges.

An indictment filed in New York on Thursday adds five charges to the original case against Shahzad, bringing the total to 10 terrorism and weapons charges.

The 30-year-old Shahzad is charged with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction among several terrorism and weapons charges.

The Pakistan-born U.S. citizen was arrested two days after his smoking SUV was found with a homemade gasoline-and-propane bomb that failed to ignite.

Authorities say he cooperated with investigators for two weeks before he asked for a lawyer.
