Federal officials say a Pakistani man from Maine has been released from jail 15 weeks after he was arrested on an immigration violation while police were investigating the attempted Times Square car bombing.

Ross Feinstein of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says Mohammad Shafiq (shah-FEEK') Rahman was released from federal custody in Boston on Thursday after posting $10,000 bail.

Rahman, a computer programmer from South Portland, and two men from Massachusetts were arrested on immigration violations on May 13 as investigators probed the May 1 car bomb attempt.

None of the three has been charged in connection with the Times Square case in which former Connecticut resident Faisal Shahzad (FY'-sul shah-ZAHD') pleaded guilty to terrorism and weapons charges.
