New York Federal Reserve Bomb Plot

New York Federal Reserve Bomb Plot, A Bangladeshi man with alleged al-Qaeda links was arrested on Wednesday in New York on charges of trying to use a 1,000 pound bomb to destroy the city’s Federal Reserve building. Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, was arrested in Manhattan after he tried to detonate what he thought was a live bomb, but was actually a dummy provided in a sting operation, federal prosecutors in Brooklyn said.
Nafis traveled to the United States in January 2012 “for the purpose of conducting a terrorist attack on US soil,” the federal prosecutor’s office in Brooklyn said in a statement.
“Nafis, who reported having overseas connections to al-Qaeda, attempted to recruit individuals to form a terrorist cell inside the United States,” the prosecutor’s office said.
“Nafis also actively sought out al-Qaeda contacts within the United States to assist him in carrying out an attack. Unbeknownst to Nafis, one of the individuals he attempted to recruit was actually a source for the FBI.”
