The Department of Justice announced that Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistani naturalized U.S. citizen accused of leaving a Nissan Pathfinder with a bomb in Times Square on May 1, was indicted on 10 counts, including attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction and attempted use of a destructive device during and in relation to a conspiracy to commit an act of terrorism transcending national boundaries, yesterday. U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara also specifically accused of Shahzad "conspiring with the Pakistani Taliban to wreak death and destruction in Times Square."

The indictment (PDF) also gives a timeline for Shahzad's actions. For instance, he "received explosives training in Waziristan, Pakistan, from explosive trainers affiliated with Tehrik-e-Taliban, a militant extremist group based in Pakistan" in December 2009 and received $5,000 in cash while in Massachusetts from a co-conspirator on February 25, 2010 and $7,000 in cash in Rokonkoma, at the same co-conspirator's direction, on April 10. The money later went to purchase a 9mm Kel-Tec rifle, the Nissan Pathfinder, and explosives found in the Pathfinder.

Shahzad, who was arrested on May 3 and has reportedly been cooperating with authorities, will be arraigned on Monday.
