Ullah prematurely detonated a pipe bomb attached to his body in the busy transport hub last month.

Ullah was the only person seriously hurt on December 11 when the bomb went off in a corridor linking the subway to Manhattan's Port Authority bus terminal.

The Bangladeshi man accused of attempting a suicide bombing in a busy New York City commuter hub in the name of Islamic State in December was indicted on USA terrorism charges by a grand jury on Wednesday.

"At this moment, not guilty", said Akayed Ullah.

The Consumer Electronic Show (CES) has kicked off in Las Vegas for five days of all-you-can-eat tech and gadgetry. It will be held at three different locations in Las Vegas, Nevada, dubbed Tech East, Tech West, and Tech South.

Akayed Ullah, 27, now faces charges including one count of seeking to provide material support to a terrorist organization, namely Daesh, and one count of using and attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.

Outside of court, Gallicchio, said, "When we have an indictment containing charges like this, I think it's easy to lose sight of the important and invaluable rights that every person is afforded in our system of justice, including Mr. Ullah".

Three commuters near Ullah during the incident at morning rush hour suffered headaches and ringing ears, in what authorities quickly pronounced a terrorist attack.

During a search of his Brooklyn apartment investigators recovered a passport with a handwritten note reading: "O America, die in your rage", as well as metal pipes, screws similar to those found at the explosion site, and wires, the complaint said.

Ullah's public defender, Amy Gallicchio, would not explain the unusual phrasing.

Emotions ran high at the time of Ullah's arrest, which occurred in the middle of the holiday season and quickly fed the political machine.

Authorities said he taunted President Donald Trump on Facebook before the attack writing, "Trump you failed to protect your nation". Ullah faces a maximum of life in prison.

He will be arraigned before Judge Sullivan. Turner estimated that if the case went to trial, it would likely take one to two weeks.
