Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistani-American arrested for plotting the failed car bomb attack in Manhattan in May, appeared in a video on Dubai-based Al Arabiya television on Wednesday, 7Days reported.
The authenticity of the video recording, in which Shahzad speaks of plans to attack the United States, was not immediately verified, according to the report.
In the first video to link Shahzad to the failed bomb plot, he appears dressed in Afghan fighter-like attire and speaks in English with an Arabic voice over. Al Arabiya reported that unaired portions of the footage show Shahzad with Faqir Mohammed, the Taliban leader in Pakistan’s region of Bajaur.
