New York - The 21-year-old arrested on charges of plotting to blow up the Federal Reserve building in Manhattan came to the US from Bangladesh on a student visa, New York City's police commissioner said.
Quazi Nafis was arrested on Wednesday after he tried to detonate a fake bomb outside the building.
Commissioner Raymond Kelly says Nafis came under the guise of going to school in Missouri, but was really plotting an attack.
Authorities tracked him using Facebook and other social media, but the account was taken down on Wednesday.
Kelly says New York City remains at the top of the terrorist target list.
