Man arrested in plot to bomb Federal Reserve building in New York City

A suspected terrorist was arrested today for allegedly plotting to blow up the Federal Reserve bank in Lower Manhattan.

According to authorities, 21-year-old Quazi Mohammed Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, a Bangladeshi national, was captured after a long sting investigation by the F.B.I. and NYPD in which he told undercover agents of his desire to destroy America and attempted to detonate fake explosives outside the Federal Reserve building, located blocks away from the World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan.

The suspect made his first court appearance in Brooklyn just hours ago, and CNN's Susan Candiotti is OutFront with more on this breaking news.
