Bangladeshi Immigrant Convicted in NYC Subway Bombing

On Tuesday, 6th of November, A Bangladeshi immigrant was convicted of set off a pipe bomb in the busiest subway station, New York City. He was initially said to be supporting the Islamic State group but was later disputed to be motivated by anger at the American President, Donald Trump. The immigrant, Akayed Ullah, was convicted in a federal high court of Manhattan where he was said to be supporting the Islamic State group. This is a logical conclusion based on an earlier trial (December 11, 2017) in which the defense maintained that Ullah intended to kill only himself. Subsequent to the earlier attack, no one was confirmed dead, and the majority of the injuries were not serious. According to the prosecutors, Ullah's main goal in his latest attack is to maim or kill commuters in tune of "lone wolf" terrorist attack calls by the Islamic State group, but Ullah denied such claims. Prosecutors refuted such denial by claiming that there would not have been any need for Ullah to wear a bomb if he had wanted to kill only himself.

The Reason I Bombed NYC Subway

Having declared that he was not representing the terrorist group, Ullah said he bombed the NYC subway as a response to Trump's declaration to bomb the Middle East as well as protect his nation against attacks. Ullah accused the American government of trying to put him in a group he does not support. On the contrary, Ullah was quoted to have said to investigators that his wish was to avenge U.S. aggression against the terrorist group and decided to carry out his plan on a busy weekday morning in order to be able to affect as many people as possible according to Assistant U.S. Attorney, George Turner.
