The man arrested for reportedly trying to blow up a car of fake explosives outside the Federal Reserve building in Manhattan Wednesday said he wanted to “destroy America.”
Quazi Mohammad Reswanul Ahsan Nafis, who claims to have al-Qaeda links, was arrested after attempting to detonate the bomb.
“I just want something big. Something very big. Very, very, very, very big, that will shake the whole country,” he had told his supposed accomplices, who were actually undercover FBI agents. Nafis is facing charges of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to provide material support to al-Qaeda. He is being held without bail.
