New York subway suspect charged with terrorism

Akayed Ullah, the suspect behind the recent attempted subway bombing in New York, has been charged with criminal possession of a weapon, a support act of terrorism and making a terroristic threat.

The New York Police Department (NYPD), who took the 27-year-old into custody shortly after his vest-worn pipe bomb exploded in the busy commuter hub, have reported that Ullah targeted the subway hub due to the festive Christmas-themed posters on display there.

Ullah, a Bangladeshi national, was reportedly radicalised online and acted in retaliation for US airstrikes in Syria against ISIS.
