Moment of Blast Among Trove of Never-Before-Seen Footage Entered Into Evidence at Alleged NYC, NJ Bomber Trial
Ahmad Khan Rahimi, 29, is accused of detonating a pressure cooker bomb in Chelsea and a pipe bomb in New Jersey last year, injuring 30 people and sparking a days-long manhunt that ended with a dramatic shootout and wounded police. Rahimi was also shot multiple times. On Oct. 2, the Afghanistan-born U.S. citizen went on trial for crimes including using a weapon of mass destruction and interstate transportation of explosives.
On Day 1 of that trial, prosecutors entered into evidence never-before-seen videos and photos of the Chelsea bombing, including footage of the exact moment the device exploded.
