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 β€” 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.

    I AGREE that he needs to be tried under TREASON law. That is what he did he betrayed his country! By the way he is not a moslem as what he tried to do has got nothing to do with Islam. Killing innocent people is strictly forbidden in any religion!

    He wants to die – then strap a bomb onto him and let it explode!!!!! A parking lot needs to be made across the water to cure all of this

    This man is a TRAITOR and a criminal and a Psycho! Strip his citizenship and hang him for high treason as an example for the rest of such people. I also agree killing innocent lives is part of no religion. These people twist religion to their own benefit like the Spanish Inquisition that had nothing to do with Christianity...

      I work for the man. News agencies were on this too quick. To much visibility for something like that.

    To all that comment: 1) When fighting monsters be careful 'lest you become that which fight 2) we are a nation of laws not lynch mobs - or we are supposed to be, so 3) let the courts take their course and stop sounding off like hyper-active adolescents. The crimes with which he is charged are heinous and serious; why are you belittling that with words unworthy of 13 year-old boys?
