Video Emerges of Times Square Suspect Buying Fireworks

Washington, May 7 (DPA) A video has been aired in the US showing the suspect in the attempted bombing of New York's Times Square purchasing fireworks.

Broadcaster CNN aired the footage Thursday captured by cameras in a Phantom Fireworks store in Matamoras, Pennsylvania, which is said to show Faisal Shahzad purchasing M-88 firecrackers.

M-88s were a component in the bomb placed in a black sport-utility vehicle and parked Saturday in the heart of New York. The bomb never detonated, and a street vendor alerted police to the suspicious vehicle.

Shahzad, a 30-year-old naturalized US citizen from Pakistan, was arrested Monday while trying to flee the country at John F Kennedy International Airport.

Shahzad faces charges that include attempting to carry out a terrorist attack.
