MAN ARRESTED IN PLOT TO BLOW UP FEDERAL RESERVE BANK IN NEW YORK:
Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, was arrested for allegedly attempting to detonate what he thought was a 1,000-pound bomb at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in Manhattan, the Department of Justice and a U.S. attorney’s office said in a press release.
He will be charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to provide material support to al-Qaeda, the press release said.
(Incidentally, if a 1000-pound bomb constitutes a WMD, by that definition, Iraq must have been crawling with the stuff.)
