Court papers: FBI looked at Rahami 2 years ago

NEW YORK (AP) – Federal court papers give a chilling glimpse into what authorities say motivated the man accused of last weekend’s bombings in New York and New Jersey.

The documents say that two years ago, the FBI looked into Ahmad Khan Rahami but came up with nothing tying him to terrorism.

Authorities say the Afghan-born U.S. citizen bought bomb ingredients on eBay and recorded a video of himself igniting a blast in a backyard.
