New York Fed Bomb Plot: FBI Arrest Patsy
Undercover officers foil a plot to bomb the Federal Reserve building in New York, arresting a 21-year-old in a sting operation.
9:17pm UK, Wednesday 17 October 2012

The FBI has arrested a man over an alleged plot to blow up the Federal Reserve in New York, just blocks away from the World Trade Center site.

Bangladeshi native Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, was arrested on Wednesday morning after a sting operation that involved the FBI and the New York Police Department.

The suspect allegedly parked a van filled with what he believed were explosives outside the building and tried to detonate it.

But his associates were actually undercover officers who arrested him at the scene. The explosives were not real.

Federal prosecutors say the man was monitored closely by the FBI in New York and members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force.

The arrest has been confirmed by the FBI, which released a statement about its investigation on Wednesday.

"Attempting to destroy a landmark building and kill or maim untold numbers of innocent bystanders is about as serious as the imagination can conjure," Mary Galligan, the FBI's acting assistant director, said in the statement.

"The defendant faces appropriately severe consequences. It is important to emphasize that the public was never at risk in this case, because two of the defendant's 'accomplices' were actually an FBI source and an FBI undercover agent.

"The FBI continues to place the highest priority on preventing acts of terrorism."

Prison Planet has had a lot to say about it so far.
These two lead to other articles.
