‘DISAPPEARED’

NYC Bombing Suspect Ahmed Khan Rahami Went to Afghanistan

The suspected New York City bomber recently visited his native Afghanistan, according to those who knew him. The New York Times reported Monday afternoon that around four years ago, Ahmed Khan Rahami, 28, traveled to the country of his birth and, according to patrons of his family’s restaurant, he returned a remarkably different person—he grew a beard, began wearing traditional Muslim garb, and became “serious and completely closed off.” CBS News confirmed with U.S. officials that Rahami had traveled to Afghanistan at least once in recent years, and that he was not on any terror watch lists.
