ISIS Inspired Terrorist Indicted For NYC Bombing

Ullah, who immigrated to the United States from Bangladesh in 2011, appeared for a formal arraignment before U.S. District Judge Richard Sullivan of the Southern District of NY wearing blue and gray jail scrubs, appearing to move gingerly as he took his seat between his attorneys, Amy Gallicchio and Julia Gatto of the Federal Defenders of NY.

A grand jury indicted Akayed Ullah, who was accused of trying to blow up a suicide bomb in New York City in December, on terrorism charges, Wednesday.

- In handcuffs, terror suspect Akayed Ullah walked into federal court in Manhattan Thursday.

A NY man pleaded not guilty Thursday to trying to bomb a subway station, an attack that injured no one seriously but himself.

Ullah, 27, is accused of carrying out the December 11 attack in a busy passageway near Port Authority Bus Terminal in midtown Manhattan.

"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.

When asked by a judge if he had a plea, he responded saying not guilty. Ullah "is a lawful permanent resident" who entered the country in 2011 using a "passport displaying an F43 family immigrant visa", Houlton said in a statement. And she said he needed some of the dressing on his wounds changed.

Days after his arrest he had appeared through video conference.

Ullah suffered lacerations and burns to his hand and stomach in the bombing, authorities said.

The judge said he may set a trial date at the next hearing, which was set for April 13.

Prosecutors say that Ullah used a pipe bomb filled with metal screws in the attack. The president later demanded tightened immigration rules.

Ullah began to self-radicalize three years ago, authorities said, but law enforcement said he wasn't on their radar before the subway attack.

Prosecutors said Ullah wanted to cause carnage to avenge US aggression toward the Islamic State group.
