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.
Rahami is charged with using weapons of mass destruction, and several other charges related to the use of explosives in “furtherance of a crime of violence”.
The criminal complaint was unsealed Tuesday at a federal court in Manhattan.
Rahami, 28, was captured on Monday after being wounded in a gunfight with police in Linden, New Jersey.
Rahami is also facing charges relating to a shootout with police, including five counts of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer, second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon and second-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose. He was being held on $5.2m bail.
