NEW YORK (AP) - The man accused of setting off bombs in New Jersey and New York has appeared before a Manhattan judge on federal terrorism charges.
Ahmad Khan Rahimi did not enter a plea Thursday. He previously pleaded not guilty in New Jersey to charges related to a shootout with police officers.
His lawyer, David Patton, said Rahimi has medical concerns after eight to 10 surgeries, many for infections. He says one of Rahimi's hands doesn't close, and he has an open wound and liver damage.
Rahimi is accused of detonating a pipe bomb along a Marine Corps charity race in Seaside Park, New Jersey, and planting two pressure cooker bombs in New York City.
One of those devices did not explode. The other one detonated in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, injuring 30 people.
