Police seeking men who found pressure cooker

Criminal complaints in Manhattan and New Jersey federal courts provided chilling descriptions of what authorities say drove the Afghan-born USA citizen to set off explosives in NY and New Jersey, including a bomb that injured over two dozen people when it blew up on a busy Manhattan street.

Surveillance footage of the bomb on West 27th Street.

Investigators say Rahami planted two bombs in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood Saturday night.

"One passage said: "You [USA Government] continue your [unintelligible] slaught [er]" against the mujahideen, or holy warriors, be it Afghanistan, Iraq, Sham (Syria), Palestine". It wasn't immediately clear whether Rahami had a lawyer who could comment on the charges.

The father of the man charged with setting off bombings in NY and New Jersey has said he warned federal authorities about the man's interest in jihadist material.

Rahami was wounded in the Monday shootout and is being held on $5.2 million bail and faces state charges of attempted murder of police officers.

The FBI has released an image of two men seen removing a bomb from a suitcase in NY. They are not in custody and are not being taken anywhere by law enforcement.

Fox News is also told that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents are near his hospital bed waiting for Rahami to wake up so they can begin questioning.

"In the last month, I've seen him driving three fancy SUVs, with New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania license plates", said one woman who lives around the corner from Rahami's Elizabeth home and refused to be identified. "It was something to the effect of, 'My son is acting like a terrorist.' He didn't say he was looking up information on internet or building bombs, he just used the T word".

Federal agents first became aware of Rahami two years ago, when his father shared with them his concerns that his son might be involved in terrorism.

Rahami's wife left the USA a few days before the bombings, CNN reported, citing a law enforcement source.

Andre Almeida, a customer at the restaurant for the past eight years, said he noticed when Rahami stopped wearing Western clothes after returning from Afghanistan and started wearing "a little more ethnic clothing". No one was injured.

The father made the statement about his son being a terrorist to New Jersey police in 2014, when Mr. Rahami was arrested after a domestic dispute and accused of stabbing his brother.

Late Sunday night, five explosive devices were discovered in a trash can at an Elizabeth train station.
