- Police say Times Square bomb SUV bought on Craiglist
- Blast would have been deadly
Faisal Shahzad, a US citizen of Pakistani origin, is due to appear in a Manhattan court. He will face charges of driving the bomb into Times Square.
Authorities say it is believed the SUV was recently bought by Bridgeport, Connecticut resident Shazad. His home in Bridgeport has been searched, and several plastic bags of evidence were collected by law enforcement officials.
The FBI said Mr. Shazad had recently visited Pakistan for a 5 month period, and they are probing individuals and groups from there who may be involved with the Times Square incident.
A direct link to the Taliban is still without any supporting evidence.
