  • Private journal of the US Bomber Ahmad Rahami, has been discovered and the notes from the journal testify to his desire of “martyrdom” for Jihad
  • The partly damaged journal points to Rahami’s plans and comments on carrying out the bombings
  • Surveillance footage and fingerprints found on the massacre point bear evidence of Rahami’s crime

Sept 21, 2016: A journal belonging to Ahmad Khan Rahami, the man behind the Us bombings, in New Jersey and New York’s Chelsea, clarifies his desire for “martyrdom” for Jihad’s cause, prosecutors claim.

The blood-soaked self-written document pierced by a bullet in the mayhem was found in Linden, New Jersey, at the spot of a shootout between the police and Rahami.

The Independent cited musings in the journal of the US bomber, which has been detailed in federal charges filed on Tuesday: “Inshallah [God willing] the sounds of the bombs will be heard in your streets. Gunshots to your police. Death to your oppression.”

According to the criminal complaint by FBI special agent Peter Frederick Licata, Rahami was responsible for bombs constructed out of a pressure cooker and placed in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighbourhood on Saturday, as well as pipe bombs in New Jersey’s Seaside Park and Elizabeth, the Guardian reported.

The criminal complaint alleges that Rahami left copious fingerprints on one of two bombs in Manhattan, on 27th Street, as well as on materials in the backpack containing the Elizabeth bombs.

Review of surveillance footage near the other bomb location, on 23rd Street, found a positive identification of Rahami “pulling a small suitcase” two minutes before the detonation.

Adam B. Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Rahami wrote about the Boston Marathon bombings in a notebook he was carrying when he was arrested.

He referenced late Al Qaeda plotter Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born radical cleric whose online videos the Boston bombers had watched, Schiff added.

Rahami remains at University Hospital in Newark, recovering from a gunshot wound to his leg. (IANS)
