A 22-year-old Bangladeshi man pled guilty to terrorism charges for trying to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in New York has been sentenced to 30 years in prison

Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis became radicalized at his university in Bangladesh and came to the United States with aspirations of jihad, according to lawyers on both sides. Authorities say that Nafis adopted increasingly more radical views in the United States and began using social media to seek support for a terror attack. One of his contacts turned out to be a government informant who notified authorities. They set up a sting operation with phony explosives.
