Shahzad, 31, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Pakistan, was taken into custody at John F. Kennedy International Airport on May 3 after he was identified by the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection while attempting to leave the United States on a commercial flight to Dubai.
He was then charged in a five-count criminal complaint after being indicted in the Southern District of New York for ten offenses relating to the May 1 attempted bombing. On June 21, he pleaded guilty to all ten offenses.
