A jihadi who injured 30 people after setting off several bombs in New York has been jailed for life.
Ahmad Khan Rahimi expressed no remorse for the explosions that rocked the Chelsea neighbourhood in 2016.
He claimed: "I don’t harbor hatred towards anyone.
"But through life experience, I have learned to understand why there’s such frustration between the Muslim community overseas and the American people."
Rahimi, a 30-year-old U.S. citizen born in Afghanistan, said that he had been “harassed” by authorities while traveling because of his Muslim appearance after he started practising the religion.
Rahimi also said that his father had reported him to the Federal Bureau of Investigation several years ago because he feared that Rahimi was getting involved in terrorism, and believed in the slogan, “see something, say something.”
