The Manhattan federal jury will get back to work Monday morning in the trial of 29-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahimi, of Elizabeth, New Jersey. The Afghanistan-born Rahimi is accused of planting a bomb in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood that went off, injuring 30 people. He’s also accused of detonating a bomb along a charity race in Seaside Park, New Jersey, that didn’t injure anyone.
