First photo of Times Square bombing suspect since arrest

Faisal Shahzad was arrested in connection with an attempted bombing in Times Square.

[Updated at 10:51 a.m.] CNN's Susan Candiotti has obtained Faisal Shahzad's mugshot, which is the first new photo of the attempted Times Square bomber, since he was arrested for his association with the plot in Manhattan.

The photo was taken after Faisal Shahzad was formally placed in the custody of the U.S. Marshals on Wednesday. He’s shown wearing a grey sweatshirt — the same clothes he wore in court. Unlike earlier photos taken before he was arrested, he now has a slight beard.

[Posted at 10:40 a.m.] Attempted Times Square bombing suspect Faisal Shahzad is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in lower Manhattan, a federal law enforcement official told CNN.

    note to all the commentators out here – HE IS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN...still an azz, but not subject to deportation or AZ law or any such nonsense. Unfortunately we will have to deal with him here in our system of justice – whatever the heck that might be.... Let's have a lively discussion of the facts, and please know them before you spout off!

    How many Pakistani's US need to capture before we decide to do something against that country, why they still get billions of aid when they cant stop people like Afzal to get train and plan attack on us.

    I agree with others here that treason is the appropriate charge.

    Does failure or success in the mission affect sentencing? I think not.

    Method of execution? Up for debate.

    I'd like to smash him in his paki face. Pa-pa-pa-paki, pa-pa-pa- paki face. Pa-pa-pa-paki, pa-pa-pa-paki face. Maybe Lady GaGa can't write a song about him?

    I wouldn't have allowed him to board the Dubai flight just for his look itself. The airport security guys need to be trained more
