A Muslim radical who allegedly killed two American airmen during a shooting rampage in Germany was charged with first-degree murder today in Manhattan federal court.

A witness said Arid Uka, 21, repeatedly recited the phrase “God is great” in Arabic after opening fire on U.S. Air Force personnel at the Frankfurt International Airport on March 2, according to court papers.

German authorities have said that Uka, originally from Kosovo, confessed that he was seeking revenge for the American invasion of Afghanistan after watching radical Islamist videos on the Internet.

Senior Airman Nicholas Alden and Airman 1st Class Zachary Cuddeback both died after being shot in the head at close range, after which Uka allegedly wounded two more Air Force members before his gun apparently jammed.

A spokeswoman for the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office wouldn’t say when Uka, currently in German custody, was expected to arrive in New York to face prosecution.
