NEW YORK - Federal prosecutors in New York on Tuesday announced murder charges against a Kosovan man who shot dead two US airmen and wounded two others at Frankfurt airport in March.

Arid Uka, a 21-year-old Kosovan national, confessed to firing on the US airmen at point-blank range with a 9mm pistol, German authorities said following the March 2 attack. He is currently detained in Germany.

"As Uka fired his gun, he repeated aloud an Arabic expression that means, 'God is great,' and continued shooting until his gun did not fire," Manhattan US attorney Preet Bharara said in a statement.

Prosecutors charged Uka with three counts of murder and attempted murder of US soldiers, along with other charges
