Bangladeshi bomber pleads not guilty to NY subway terror charges

Authorities said Ullah detonated a device made of a battery, wires, metals screws and a Christmas tree light bulb in an underground walkway connecting two subway lines beneath the Port Authority Bus terminal, which accommodates 220,000 passenger trips a day.

A Bangladeshi immigrant was indicted Wednesday in the failed pipe bombing of the NY subway system last month. According to USA attorney Geoffrey S. Berman, Ullah could get life in prison.

Akayed Ullah, a 27-year-old Bangladeshi man, faces a six-count indictment in the December 11 bombing.

This undated photo provided by the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission shows Akayed Ullah, the suspect in the explosion near New York's Times Square.

Ullah suffered lacerations and burns to his hand and stomach in the bombing, authorities said.

Ullah's public defender, Amy Gallicchio, would not explain the unusual phrasing.

Surveillance video captured the moment when, according to investigators, Ullah set off what law enforcement agents described as a poorly constructed pipe bomb. He appeared to be the only person seriously injured during the incident.

He was read and waived his Miranda Rights, or the right to remain silent, verbally and in writing when interviewed by police, later saying he was inspired by Daesh to carry out the botched attack, the complaint said.

Republicans quickly seized upon Ullah's immigration status in the aftermath of his arrest.

Ullah could face life in prison if he is convicted of all charges in the attack.

He will be arraigned before Judge Sullivan.

"In selecting this time and place", Berman said, "Ullah's alleged objective in the Port Authority bombing was painfully clear: to inflict as much damage as possible, and to strike fear into the hearts of New Yorkers in the name of ISIS".

Meanwhile, Ullah will seek medical attention inside Manhattan's Metropolitan Correctional, where attorneys say that he needs treatment to remove his stitches and replace his dressing.
