NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The man who tried to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank Building in lower Manhattan has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to terrorism charges.
“I’m ashamed. I’m lost. I tried to do a terrible thing. I alone am responsible for what I’ve done. Please forgive me,” Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis said during his sentencing Friday in Brooklyn federal court.
Judge Carol Bagely Amon accepted his remorse as genuine, but added that there’s no doubt Nafis intended to bring down the Federal Reserve Bank building and kill everyone in it, along with scores of innocent people on the outside, WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell reported.
