Ahmad Khan Rahami Listed Jihad Videos, Judge Judy on YouTube Account

Authorities included details about his YouTube account in a criminal complaint

Ahmad Khan Rahami, who has been charged with recent New York and New Jersey bombings, allegedly counted two jihad-related videos among his favorite YouTube videos.

Rhamani’s YouTube account, which used the username yaafghankid786, included a list of his favorite videos, according to a criminal complaint filed by Peter F. Licata, a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Joint Terrorism Task, the New York Times reported.

One of the videos referenced a martyr’s anthem, and the other featured images of battles on a desert, according to the Times, citing the criminal complaint. The 96 videos on the list also included love songs, a clip from Judge Judy and a cat video. They were created by others, not by Rahami, authorities said.

Rahami, who was captured on Monday and remains hospitalized with gunshot wounds from a police shootout, is suspected of planting explosives in New York City and New Jersey last weekend. The blast in Manhattan on Saturday injured 31 people.
