WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Ahmad Rahimi, a US immigrant from Afghanistan who is suspected in a series of September bombings in and near New York City, has been indicted on eight counts in a federal court in connection with the attacks, acting Assistant Attorney General Mary McCord said in a statement.

"Ahmad Khan Rahimi has been indicted in New York and separately charged in New Jersey for allegedly planting and detonating bombs that resulted in numerous injuries," McCord stated Wednesday.

The September 17 bombings in the New Jersey communities of Seaside Park and Elizabeth as well as New York’s Chelsea neighborhood injured at least 29 people; in addition, two New Jersey police officers were wounded two days later in a shootout with Rahimi.
