New York –
A US restaurant worker was sentenced to life in prison for a New York bombing that injured 31 people in 2016. By a federal judge, the man claiming to be inspired by Osama bin Laden is said to be very dangerous.
Ahmad Khan Rahimi, born in Afghanistan, court that he became radical after being "harassed" by the FBI and "exiled" because of his religion. During the trial, the 30-year-old man did not show any remorse for his actions.
At the trial as reported by the AFP news agency, Wednesday (14/2/2018), the public prosecutor stated that "magical" was killed in a bomb attack that occurred on September 17, 2016. The second bomb explosion led to the cancellation of a US Marine Corps running event in the town of Seaside Park, New Jersey. Rahimi was found guilty of eight counts
Police have also defused other bombs at Chelsea and found additional pipe bombs in the home town of Rahimi, Elizabeth, New Jersey where he works in his family restaurant. Rahimi was wounded in a crossfire with police on September 19, 2017 before he was arrested. It also found a journal of its own writing that praised Osama bin Laden and recruited US-born al-Qaeda, Anwar al-Awlaki. He moved to the United States in 1995 with his family and became a naturalized citizen in 2011.
In court, Rahimi said that he understands why there is frustration between Muslim countries and Americans.
"I have been here for more than 20 years, I have American friends and Muslim friends, "said Rahimi. According to him, things change after he acts and dresses like a devout Muslim.
Since Rahimi's arrest, two other lone-wolf attackers have staged a bombing in New York. A Bangladeshi driver blew up a bomb to injure himself and three others in December 2017. Earlier on 31 October 2017, an Uzbek immigrant crashed his truck into cyclists, killing eight people. The man claimed to be inspired by the ISIS terrorist group.
