A Bangladeshi immigrant was indicted Wednesday in the failed pipe bombing of the NY subway system last month.
Akayed Ullah appeared in federal court in Lower Manhattan Thursday, a day after he was indicted by a grand jury. Ullah is suspected of strapping a pipe bomb to his body and setting it off in a subway passageway.
Ullah was hospitalized for injuries suffered after the bomb ignited but failed to detonate as intended, while three other people suffered minor injuries, according to prosecutors.
He has also been charged with one count each of bombing and attempting to bomb a place of public use and a public transportation system; destruction and attempted destruction of property by means of fire or explosives; conducting and attempting to conduct a terrorist attack against a mass transportation system.
Akayed Ullah, a Bangladeshi immigrant, said little during his first appearance in federal court in Manhattan.

Ullah was the only person seriously hurt on December 11 when the bomb went off in a corridor linking the subway to Manhattan's Port Authority bus terminal. Inside Ullah's passport, which was recovered from his home, was a handwritten note that read, "O AMERICA, DIE IN YOUR RAGE", according to the complaint.
Republicans quickly seized upon Ullah's immigration status in the aftermath of his arrest.
But Ullah's case has receded from the headlines since that time, and he faces a months-long road ahead to a possible trial. President Donald Trump called for further restrictions to the F-4 program that allowed Bangladesh-born Ullah to obtain a US visa, fueling the myth of an immigrant crime wave.
He will be arraigned before Judge Sullivan.
Assistant U.S. Attorney George Turner estimated that any eventual trial would likely last roughly two weeks.
