Man Who Plotted To Blow Up Federal Reserve Bank in New York Given 30-Year Sentence

Plot foiled by undercover FBI agent


A 22-year-old man who admitted plotting to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in New York has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, from Bangladesh, begged for leniency during his sentencing, having pleaded guilty to terrorism charges in February.

"I'm ashamed. I'm lost. I tried to do a terrible thing. I alone am responsible for what I've done. Please forgive me," he told Manhattan federal court, as he apologised to the judge, the United States, New York City and his parents.
