NEWARK, NEW JERSEY (Reuter) - A chemical engineer of Palestinian descent was charged yesterday in the bombing of the World Trade Center, and FBI sources said he was one of the two 'who did the bombing'.

The man, Nidal Ayyad, 25, is the second person formally charged. Last Thursday, police arrested Mohammed Salameh in connection with the bombing, on 26 February, which killed at least five and injured more than 1,000 people. James Esposito, chief of the FBI in Newark, said more arrests were expected, but added: 'we feel we have two of the main players.' A third man has been charged with obstruction of justice in the inquiry.
