Bangladeshi man pleads not guilty in NYC subway attack

US: New York bomb attack suspect indicted on 6 counts

He injured three people in addition to himself when the bomb exploded on December 11, and was arrested at the scene.

Akayed Ullah, who was indicted on federal terrorism charges for a bombing in a New York City subway station last December, has pleaded not guilty.

In the hearing, he told the judge he understood all the charges against him and said "at the moment" he was not guilty of the counts, which include providing material support to a terrorist organization and using a weapon of mass destruction.

"Ullah's alleged plot failed, and he is now charged with federal terrorism offenses and facing life behind bars".

During Wednesday's indictment hearing, US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said the selection of time and place has made it clear that Akayed's intention was to inflict as much damage as possible, and to strike fear into the hearts of New Yorkers in the name of Islamic State.

"In selecting this time and place, Ullah's alleged goal 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", U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said when announcing the indictment. Ullah was indicted Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018, in the failed pipe bombing of the NY subway system in December.

Akayed immigrated to the USA on a family visa in 2011.

Defense lawyer Amy Gallicchio said Ullah, who is now held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center federal jail in Manhattan, needed medical attention for painful stitches that were "embedded" in his skin and for a medical dressing that hadn't been changed recently.

She said Ullah recently had some stitches removed but had others that were still causing him a "great deal of discomfort".

Akayed posted a warning to US President Donald Trump just before the attack. Officials say the 27 year old Ullah had a bomb strapped to his chest and planned to die in the blast. The president later demanded tightened immigration rules.

Ullah suffered burns and other wounds; no one else was seriously injured. "Ullah's alleged plot failed", U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman of the Southern District of NY said in a statement, referring to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or Daesh.
