The other men are Talha Haroon, who was arrested in Pakistan, and Russell Salic, who was arrested in the Philippines, where he is a citizen.

WNBC said the suspect in custody allegedly spoke to one or two other men about also wanting to strike Times Square and subways during rush hour.

The men, identified as Canadian citizen Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy, 19, U.S. citizen Talha Haroon, 19, and Philippines resident Russell Salic, 37, have since been arrested. Both are awaiting extradition to the U.S., the feds said.

Three men conspired to detonate a auto bomb Times Square and shoot up concert venues and subway cars in NYC last summer, according to an indictment that was unsealed by a federal judge today.

"We need a really strong bomb", El Bahnasawy was quoted as saying, according to court documents.

We really need a auto bomb at Times Square.

Haroon expressed his enthusiasm for a plan to attack the subway system, calling it a flawless target in a communication with the undercover agent in May 2016. Look at these crowds of people!' El Bahnasawy messaged the undercover agent along with a picture of the New York City landmark last May, according to prosecutors.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi condemned the attack and vowed that his government will act against militants with full might. Officials said the death toll rose after an under-treatment victim succumbed to his injuries at the Chandka hospital in Larkana.

"El Bahnasawy and Haroon identified multiple locations and events in and around New York City as targets of the planned attacks, including the New York City subway system, Times Square and certain concert venues", the statement said.

The FBI concluded that Mr Salic also had provided the funding for a June 28, 2016, grenade attack in a nightclub in Malaysia, which injured eight people, according to Mr Haven. "That's how Paris guys did it", the papers said in an apparent reference to the slaughter by men armed with assault weapons at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris during a performance of the rock group Eagles of Death Metal in 2015.

Last May, El Bahnasawy allegedly sent the undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent an image of Times Square with the message, stating "We seriously need a auto bomb at times square.Look at these crowds of people!"

NY police officers and a dog stand guard, Times Square, December 31, 2015. El Bahnasawy provided the man's contact information to the agent to facilitate the transfer.

Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy, a Canadian citizen, was arrested in New Jersey and pleaded guilty to seven terror charges in October 2016. He is scheduled to be sentenced on December 12. US citizen Haroon was arrested in Pakistan, and Philippine citizen Salic was arrested in the Philippines. All told, the charges could carry three life sentences and up to 70 years in prison.

Prosecutors include that El Bahnasawy purchased bomb-production materials while in Canada; Haroon supposedly met with an explosives master in Pakistan to get more data on the most proficient method to assemble bombs.
