Topic - Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis
At the Missouri college where Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis enrolled, a classmate said he often remarked that true Muslims don't believe in violence. That image seemed startlingly at odds with the Bangladesh native's arrest in an FBI sting this week on charges of trying to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in New York with what he thought was a 1,000-pound car bomb.
A Bangladeshi man snared in an FBI terror sting considered targeting President Obama and the New York Stock Exchange before settling on a car bomb attack on the Federal Reserve, just blocks from the World Trade Center site, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Thursday.
The high-ranking U.S. government official who allegedly was considered for assassination during a terrorism plot has been identified as President Obama, a law enforcement official says.
Shortly before Nafis was arrested for attempting to set off the phony bomb, he revealed his plan in a chilling video in which he said, "We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom."
"He is very gentle and devoted to his studies," he said, pointing to Nafis' time studying at the private North South University in Dhaka.
