The main suspect in the alleged attempt to set of a car bomb in New York's Times Square last month has been indicted by a federal grand jury.

Faisal Shahzad, 30, is facing terror charges, including attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.

The explosives found in a car on Times Square on 1 May failed to detonate.

Mr Shahzad, a Pakistani-born US citizen, was later arrested at New York's JFK airport. He faces life in prison if convicted.

He did not enter a plea at a court appearance on 18 May, but officials said he was co-operating.

The SUV found on Times Square was loaded with fertiliser, fireworks, gasoline, propane and alarm clocks.

Investigators traced the vehicle back to Mr Shahzad.
