Akayed Ullah indicted for NY explosion

Akayed Ullah had no visible injuries in Thursday's hearing after the flubbed attack in the corridor linking the Port Authority Bus Terminal and the Times Square subway station on December 11.

He said other evidence includes Ullah's post-arrest statements, Federal Bureau of Investigation laboratory reports on fingerprints and other forensic evidence along with materials gathered during searches of locations where Ullah stored his laptop and other personal items.

Three commuters near Ullah during the incident at morning rush hour suffered headaches and ringing ears, in what authorities quickly pronounced a terrorist attack. "I did it for the Islamic State", he allegedly said.

Ullah had a pipe bomb strapped to his body with Velcro when it went off inside the station.

Accused bomber Akayed Ullah pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges that he detonated an explosive in the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Midtown last month. Inside Ullah's passport, which was recovered from his home, was a handwritten note that read, "O AMERICA, DIE IN YOUR RAGE", according to the complaint.

Ullah was indicted Wednesday on six counts, including attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to bomb a place of public use and a public transportation system.

His court-appointed attorney, Amy Gallicchio, did not elaborate on the plea outside court.

The suspect, a Bangladeshi man, was in the USA on a chain migration visa, Department of Homeland Security Press Secretary Tyler Houlton said at the time.

He was the only person seriously injured. President Donald Trump and GOP leadership have publicly opposed this policy and have said the practice should be halted as part of any comprehensive immigration reform.

But Ullah's case has receded from the headlines since that time, and he faces a months-long road ahead to a possible trial.

He will be arraigned before Judge Sullivan.
