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.

    This guy doesn't represent any religion.He is an idiot.Quran says "If you kill one person, you kill whole man kind and if you save one person, you save whole mankind."Go to local muslim center and understand what islam really is before making any comment.

      Here's just one example from the Koran of the "peaceful" nature of Islam...

      Sura 9:29-31 : Muslims are commanded to fight Jews and Christians until they are subdued. Those who submitted themselves to Muslim rulers were to be subjected to a heavy tribute. The reason is because God's curse is upon them: "Fight those who believe not in God nor the last day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by God and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of truth, (even if they are) of the people of the Book [Christians and Jews], until they pay the jizya [tribute] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. The Jews call Uzair [Ezra] a son of God, and the Christians call Christ the Son of God ... God's curse be on them."

    This piece of garbage – along with all other Muslim terrorists that we catch throughout the world – should be put to death by having all of his blood replaced with rancid pigs blood. Let the word of THAT get around to all the delusional, allah-loving, stone age Muslims, and then we'll see how brave they really are.

    To Toddle – torture is not for rehabilitation purposes it is so that we can enjoy watching them suffer- believe me they do not like pain when it is being inflicted upon themselves. – Especially this Faisal Shahzad guy – he is a giant coward – he was supposed to blow himself up in the car instead he went super coward and ran away hoping the car would blow up. I do not watch 24- I am an American who loves America and hates all Muslims. I hate all Muslims because they all believe the same thing- that everyone in the world must convert to Islamic ways – they hate everyone who is not Muslim.

    • you make me sad.

      You obviously know nothing about Muslim people and Islam. Just because some extremists are the ones making the headlines these days shouldn't mean anyone has the right to judge a religion that in most sects is extremely peaceful and beautiful. As a Christian I find your comment ugly and hateful.

      Nicole, you are incredibly ignorant You 'hate' all muslims? All muslims hate those that dont convert? This is idiotic. The Koran preaches no more about violence than the Old Testament. Moreover, the vast majority of muslims soundly denounce terrorism, anti semitism and the like. Your comments are way off base. Its clear you are an uneducated fool. Do less spouting off of the mouth and more reading, Islam is more like Christianity than you think. But then again, even if you are Christian I doubt you'd know a thing about that either. Im white, born and raised in America and a muslim. I have incredible friends that are both Jewish and Christian and honestly cant think of one human being that I actually 'hate'. It is my opinion that this guy and any other that attempts or is plotting to attempt to attach our nation be completely annhilated. However, Islam is no more responsible for things like this than Christianity is for abortion clinic bombings or Priest pedephelia. Most of the problems related to radicalism in the middle east are because of whats engrained in their culture that leads to a distorion and misinturpretation of religion. Do a little research before spouting off at the mouth!

      The CIA needs to really stop creating and funding these fringe groups. It may have worked in the last century, but the world is much smaller now and its far too easy to just fly over to US Soil. The divide and conquer formula is no longer valid.

      I don't understand the muslim religion as well where women do not have equal rights. That is unfair and if there is a god, it shall never allow such inhumane nature of a religion. Thats a man-made religion. I look at people as individuals but very time i am glad that i haven't born in such a religion.
