(Newser) – The buyer of the SUV found rigged with explosives in Times Square has been identified as a US citizen of Pakistani descent who recently traveled to Pakistan, officials tell the AP. The man—who authorities are seeking to arrest—bought the Nissan Pathfinder for cash 2 weeks ago from a Connecticut seller he found on Craiglist. The suspect hasn't been seen by his girlfriend or shown up at his home or workplace since Saturday night's failed bombing, the New York Daily News reports.
