In the months and weeks before allegedly planting a car bomb in Times Square, Faisal Shahzad was sent a total of about $12,000 from someone he understood worked for the Taliban in Pakistan, authorities charged Thursday  in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.

He faces charges including attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction and attempted act of terrorism transcending national boundaries.

“The facts alleged in this indictment show that the Pakistani Taliban facilitated Faisal Shahzad’s attempted attack on American soil,” Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement. “Our nation averted serious loss of life in this attempted bombing, but it is a reminder that we face an evolving threat that we must continue to fight with every tool available to the government.”
