A Fairfax County man has been charged with possessing a crude homemade bomb constructed out of fireworks.
Thirty-eight year-old Atal Bashar of Burke is a native of Afghanistan and a naturalized U.S. citizen. He made an initial appearance Monday in federal court in Alexandria.
According to an FBI affidavit, a cleaning service hired by a real estate agent found what appeared to be a bomb while cleaning Bashar's father's home in the Alexandria section of the county in March 2012.
According to the affidavit, Bashar admitted to investigators last week that he built the device for self-defense by placing fireworks in the duffel bag and surrounding it with shrapnel like nails and screws.
Bashar is being held pending a detention hearing scheduled for Wednesday.

Female Suicide Bomber for Al-Qaeda: We are defending Islam and its sanctity
Hadith, Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 992, Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.
All he has to do is refer to any one of a half-dozen stories of overaggressive cops and misdirected SWAT teams to justify his actions.
He should have just said it was some of that “multiculturalism” stuff. America needs to celebrate these bombers.
I wouldn’t be surprised if his defensive device is configured as a vest.
Oh, If he was only 107 years old.....
Sloppy reporting, and par for the course for NBC. Alexandria is not part of Fairfax County. It is an independent city.
Muslim building bombs in America
No network TV news will touch this.
He might have been building a booby trap for intruders. Still, booby traps are pretty illegal.
I can’t figure out why it took the Feds a year to charge this moop.
Yes, I know he’s actually Afghani, but moop fit soooo nicely here.
Really. And it is quite a ways down to Burke. The reason this puke is in Alexandria is that the federal court is there.
Agreed. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
