NEW YORK (AP) — A jury in New York City has watched video footage of a man dragging two small suitcases and a backpack down a Manhattan street before a bomb went off last year.

Prosecutors summoned witnesses to describe the videos on Tuesday, a day after promising jurors in Manhattan federal court they would see Ahmad Khan Rahimi carrying bags containing bombs before he deposited one of them in Chelsea. They say another bomb left several blocks away did not explode.

The bomb that went off injured 30 people. Rahimi has pleaded not guilty. A lawyer for Rahimi has asked jurors to keep their minds open.

Rahimi also is accused of detonating a pipe bomb along a charity race in Seaside Park, New Jersey.

He was captured in September 2016 after a shootout with police in New Jersey.
