Accused terror militant Ahmad Rahimi was convicted Monday in the explosion of a pressure-cooker bomb on a New York City street that injured 30 people last year.

A federal jury in Manhattan convicted Rahimi, a 29-year-old Afghan-born man living in New Jersey, of eight charges that included using a weapon of mass destruction and bombing a public place.

Rahimi faces a maximum punishment of life in prison, according to a statement from Joon H. Kim, acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. The defense lawyers, who did not call a single witness or the suspect, said they will appeal.
