Ahmad Khan Rahimi, the convicted terrorist who planted two pressure-cooker bombs on New York City streets was sentenced Tuesday to multiple life terms in prison.
Rahimi, 29, was convicted in October of planting pressure-cooker bombs in New York and New Jersey on Sept. 17, 2016. — 30 people were injured by shrapnel when the crude device detonated.

The blast in New York City happened hours after a small pipe bomb went off during a Marine Corps 5K run in Seaside Heights, N.J. No one was injured in that explosion because the race had been delayed. A subsequent two-day manhunt ended in a shootout with police in New Jersey, where Rahimi was shot several times. No police were wounded.
Federal prosecutors said Rahimi has not shown remorse since his arrest, and has tried to radicalize fellow prisoners at the federal jail in New York.
“He is proud of what he did, scornful of the American justice system, and as dedicated as ever to his terrorist ideology,” they wrote.
When asked to speak at his sentencing Tuesday, Rahimi said he doesn’t “harbor hate for anyone.”
Rahimi, an Afghanistan-born man inspired by ISIS and Al Qaeda in 2012, began attempting to radicalize other inmates at the Metropolitan Correctional Center late last year.
