NEW YORK - Ahmad Khan Rahami is facing charges in two states after investigators say he planted a series of bombs in New York and New Jersey, including one that injured 31 people when it blew up on a busy street.

A criminal complaint was unsealed Tuesday in Newark, New Jersey, shortly after a virtually identical filing was unsealed in New York.

Rahami was captured Monday after being wounded in a gunfight with police in Linden, New Jersey.

He remains hospitalized. Rahami is already facing state charges in connection with the shootout.

Investigators say Rahami planted two bombs in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood Saturday night. One didn't go off.

Another bomb exploded harmlessly in a New Jersey seaside town earlier the same day. Investigators say he left another set of explosives in a trash bin by a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
