New York Bombing Suspect Arrested

Ahmad Khan Rahami, a 28-year-old naturalized US citizen born in Afghanistan, had hours earlier been named in a “wanted” alert sent to millions local cellphonesas as Manhattan prepared to host world
leaders at the United Nations general assembly, has been arrested.

  Police believe Rahami may have been linked to Saturday’s bombing in Chelsea and another unexploded device found nearby, both constructed in pressure cookers packed with metallic fragmentation material.

Fears of an active terror cell grew earlier on Monday morning when five other suspicious devices were found near a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and one exploded as the bomb squad attempted to disarm it with a robot.

Two police officers were shot and injured after they discovered Rahimi asleep in the doorway of a bar in Linden, New Jersey, late on Monday morning. Linden’s mayor, Derek Armstead, said that the owner of the bar reported someone asleep in the doorway of his business and police officer who went to investigate recognized the man as Rahami.
