Accused bomber Ahmad Khan Rahimi was hit Tuesday with an eight-count federal indictment, reports NBC News

The 28-year-old immigrant is charged with planting and setting off bombs two months ago around New York City. 

Now that he's been indicted by a grand jury, Rahimi will appear in a federal court for his alleged acts of terrorism.

These latest charges come a month after Rahimi was charged with trying to murder police officers. 

He faces separate charges for each of the different bombs he planted.

Rahimi faces life in prison if convicted of the most serious charges. 

Officials are still investigating potential ties to terrorism.
