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.

    They should do to him what they did to teh pakistani terrorist caught in India. Ajmal Kasab the guy caught on tape shooting innocent people in India was after a fair trial given death penalty. They are now trying to expedite his hanging ceremony and soon he will be hanged untill death. They should do the same to this nut job.

    FINALLY!!! It made me sick to see pictures of him smiling. We should either have no picture of the terrorists or only show a picture of them when they are arrested. I would love a picture of him cuffed- really I would love a picture similar to the ones from Abu Garib but all the liberals would have a hissy fit . . . . Thank you to our troops and allies in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    All of you calling for torture need to shut the hell up. This man tried to blow up some propane tanks, no torture would do any good. All of you are little dorks who watch 24 re-runs.

    "I'd like to smash him in his pa-paki face. Pa-pa-pa-paki, pa-pa-pa- paki face. Pa-pa-pa-paki, pa-pa-pa-paki face."
    Maybe Lady GaGa can write a song about him? Or Howard Stern can do a song parody? What's Kidd Chris doing these days?

    I think he needs to learn, the hard way, that there ain't no 70 virgins. I think he and others that have a desire to do us harm need to be made aware that while we may fuss, argue, fight demostrate against eachother, we are Americans. We can do these things to eachother but no one can come from the outside and think he or she can harm or try to harm any one of us without the remainder of us turning on them. It's like we are brotherss and sisters. We fight all the time but don't you come and think you can jump in and fight too least you get the ass whoppin of your lifetime. NUF SAID.

    stop persecuting this man; he has had a hard upbringing with all those heavy towals on his head, the smell of camel dung in the wind, and having the blood rush to his head 5 times a day a prayer
