FBI: New York Bomber Rahami Bought Supplies on eBay Using His Name
The terrorist responsible for multiple explosions in New York and New Jersey, Ahmed Khan Rahami, bought explosives supplies through website eBay using his name as his username, the FBI revealed in an indictment published Wednesday.
Rahami navigated eBay with the username “ahmad rahimi,” an alternative spelling of his real name, according to FBI Special Agent Peter Licata, and bought a number of legal items commonly used in home bomb-making. Among those purchases were citric acid, a circuit board, fireworks electric igniters, and lead ball bearings, all found in the construction of the explosives used in Rahami’s terror attacks over the weekend. The items were purchased in June and August 2016, indicating that Rahami had planned his bombings for months. – READ MORE
