NEW YORK (AP) — A jury says it's "near consensus" but won't deliver a verdict before Monday on charges that a man planted bombs on New York City streets, including one that detonated and injured 30 people last year.

The Manhattan federal jury deliberated just over two hours Friday before telling Judge Richard Berman that it wants to return Monday.

The jurors are deciding the fate of 29-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahimi, of Elizabeth, New Jersey. Rahimi also is accused of planting bombs in New Jersey that didn't hurt anyone.

The Afghanistan-born Rahimi did not testify. He was arrested two days after the September 2016 attacks after a shootout with police.

In closing arguments, Rahimi's attorney urged jurors to acquit Rahimi of three charges that could cause a mandatory life prison term.
