Charges filed against Times Square car bombing suspect – CNN

A suspect in the failed Times Square car bombing admitted to law enforcement officials that he attempted to detonate the bomb and that he recently received bomb-making training in the Waziristan region of Pakistan, court documents allege.

Faisal Shahzad, a 30-year-old Pakistani-American who was arrested Monday night at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, has been charged with five counts in connection with the case, according to documents filed Tuesday afternoon in U.S. District Court in New York. It wasn’t clear when he would appear in court.

Earlier Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder said Shahzad — who lived in Connecticut and became a naturalized U.S. citizen last year — admitted involvement in what authorities have now labeled “a terrorist plot.”
