>> Prosecutors in New Jersey Monday charging bombing Ahmad Khan Rahami with five counts of attempted murder. This as investigators scoured every scrap of his life. Rahami is the prime suspect in the weekend bombings in New York and New Jersey. Authorities say he was born in Afghanistan but grew up in the US.
Reuters correspondent Joseph Ax spoke with friends and neighbors of the family.>> I spoke with one person who said he actually grew up as a teenager with Rahami, described him as a normal kid who hung out, played basketball at the local park, talked about sports, made jokes. But he told me that he understood that Rahami had gone to Afghanistan several years ago and that when he returned he was a little bit different.
He was acting a little more religiously, he was wearing religious garb, and they weren't really as close as they had been before that.>> FBI agents on Monday sweeping this fired chicken spot and the attached residence in Elizabeth, New Jersey. The restaurant is operated by Rahami's parents, and the suspect worked there.
He lived with his mother and father above the store. Rahami also faces several weapons charges in Union County, New Jersey. Federal charges are also expected. They'll depend on the evidence linking him to the bombs and his likely motivation.
