Foreign Exchange Student Indicted For Attempting To Blow Up Federal Reserve

A 21-year-old student was charged with using a weapon of mass destruction and trying to provide material support to al Qaeda.

Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, a Bangladeshi national, was arrested by federal authorities in a sting operation in October. He was accused of trying to detonate what he thought was a 1,000-pound bomb by using his cell phone as a trigger. The bomb was inert.

Nafis, allegedly inspired by al Qaeda, came to the United States in January on a student visa under the pretext of attending college at Southeast Missouri State University, prosecutors said.
