A Pakistani-born U.S. citizen who tried to bomb New York City's Times Square has been sentenced to life in prison.
A federal judge in New York sentenced 31-year-old Faisal Shahzad Tuesday.
Shahzad pleaded guilty in June to 10 counts of weapons and terrorism charges. In court papers filed last week, prosecutors said Shahzad picked a spot in the busy entertainment district where he felt the bomb could inflict the most damage.
Prosecutors said if Shahzad not been captured, he planned to detonate another bomb in New York City two weeks later.
