Suspected bomber Ahmad Khan Rahami charged

Federal prosecutors have charged Ahmad Khan Rahami with planting a series of bombs in New York and New Jersey, including one that injured 31 people when it blew up on a busy street.



The criminal complaint was unsealed Tuesday at a federal court in Manhattan.



Rahami was captured Monday after being wounded in a gunfight with police in Linden, New Jersey.



He remains hospitalized. Rahami is already facing state charges in connection with the shootout.



Investigators say Rahami planted two bombs in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood Saturday night. One didn't go off.



Another bomb exploded harmlessly in a New Jersey seaside town earlier the same day.



The complaint also accuses him of leaving another set of explosives in a trash bin by a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
