Rahami faces eight counts for detonation of a bomb in New York Citys Chelsea neighborhood and the bombing of a charity race in New Jersey on 17 September

An indictment has been returned charging a New Jersey man with setting off bombs in New Jersey and New York.

The eight-count indictment announced on Wednesday charges 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami in the 17 September attacks. The attacks included the detonation of a bomb in Manhattans Chelsea neighborhood that injured 30 people.

A pipe bomb was also detonated along a Marine Corps charity race in Seaside Park, New Jersey. Rahami was arrested two days later in Linden, New Jersey, after a police shootout.

He remained in New Jersey recovering from gunshot wounds until last week, when he made an initial appearance in Manhattan federal court.

His lawyer, David Patton, said then that Rahami would plead not guilty when he was indicted. Patton didnt immediately return a request for comment Wednesday.
