NEW YORK — The latest on the sentencing of a man who set off small bombs on a New York City street and at a charity race in New Jersey (all times local):

3:30 p.m.

A victim of a New York City bombing that injured 30 people confronted the bomber in court after he was sentenced to life in prison, telling him she's an immigrant too.

Pauline Nelson accepted Manhattan federal Judge Richard Berman's invitation Tuesday for victims of the Sept. 17, 2016 attack to speak at the sentencing hearing for the Afghanistan-born Ahmad Khan Rahimi.

The Brooklyn resident was hospitalized after the car she was driving was rocked by the explosion. Standing several feet from Rahimi at his sentencing, Nelson, who's originally from Trinidad, scolded him for not apologizing to victims.

She looked him in the eye as she spoke and he stared back but said nothing.

Outside court, Nelson said it brought her relief to confront him.

She says she's still frightened whenever she hears a siren.

2:20 p.m.

A man who set off small bombs on a New York City street and at a charity race in New Jersey has been sentenced to multiple terms of life in prison.

Ahmad Khan Rahimi injured 30 people when one of his pressure cooker bombs exploded in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood in 2016. That blast happened just hours after a small pipe bomb exploded along a Marine Corps road race in Seaside Park, New Jersey.

Asked to speak at his sentencing Tuesday, Rahimi said he doesn't "harbor hate for anyone."

Federal prosecutors say he has not shown remorse and has tried to radicalize fellow inmates.

A defense lawyer says Rahimi once aspired to be a police officer.

Rahimi is a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in Afghanistan.

This story corrects to show the location of the New Jersey pipe bombing explosion was in Seaside Park, not Seaside Heights.
