A 21-year-old Bangladeshi national was arrested Wednesday morning and accused of traveling to the United States to establish an al-Qaeda cell and bomb the Federal Reserve Bank in Lower Manhattan, according to court documents.
Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis is being charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to provide material support to al-Qaeda.
U.S. authorities say he traveled to the United States in January to recruit a terror cell and attack a major target, which included the Federal Reserve Bank, the New York Stock Exchange or a top U.S. official, who was not identified. . .
