New Jersey man sentenced to life in prison for planting bombs, including one that injured more than 30 people

A year earlier, in September 2016, Rahimi transported two improvised pressure-cooker bombs — similar to those used in the Boston marathon bombing in April 2013 — from New Jersey to New York, placing both in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, authorities said. One bomb left near a trash bin went off about 8:30 p.m., injuring multiple people. The other bomb, four blocks north, was discovered and rendered safe before it could explode.
