The FBI spoke for days with the man charged with setting off bombs in New York and New Jersey.
The conversation occurred while he was recovering from gunshot wounds after he was arrested, the Associated Press reports.
The revelation was made by Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicholas Lewin after Ahmad Khan Rahami pleaded not guilty to crimes involving the Sept. 17 attacks, which injured 30 people in Manhattan.
What Rahami said to the FBI was not disclosed.
Prosecutors plan to soon disclose more evidence, including videos of Rahami’s movements on the day of the bombings, records that indicate he purchased bomb-making materials, and fingerprints and DNA found on the explosive devices.
