ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) — Jurors in New Jersey are scheduled to resume deliberations in the attempted murder trial of a man already convicted of planting bombs in New York City.

Afghanistan-born naturalized U.S. citizen Ahmad Khan Rahimi faces charges stemming from his arrest in 2016.

The jury of eight women and four men began deliberating Thursday and asked for a re-showing of a surveillance video that showed a gun battle in Linden between Rahimi and police.

Rahimi's attorney has argued his client acted in self-defense.

A New York jury convicted Rahimi last year of setting off a bomb, injuring 30 people. A second bomb failed to go off.

The government presented evidence that Rahimi also set a small pipe bomb along a Marine Corps road race in Seaside Park, New Jersey, the same day.
