Conflicting Images Emerge Of NY Terror Suspect [VIDEO]

 Conflicting images have emerged of a Bangladesh native who was arrested in an FBI sting this week on charges of trying to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in New York with what he thought was a 1,000-pound car bomb.

Friends say 21-year-old Quazi Nafis often remarked that true Muslims don’t believe in violence. And his parents say he came to America to study, not carry out an attack. But federal officials say Nafis was bent on jihad and was willing to become a martyr for the cause.

Nafis, who at the time of his arrest Wednesday was working as a busboy at a restaurant in Manhattan, has been jailed without bail. His attorney has not commented on the case.

Bangladesh to talk with US about terror suspect

Bangladesh says its diplomats will meet with U.S. officials to learn more Nafis

Foreign Minister Dipu Moni says Bangladesh diplomats in the U.S. will meet State Department officials Saturday in Washington.

The arrest of the 21-year-old has stunned his family in Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka. They say he could not have committed the alleged crimes.

“This is a sensitive issue,” Moni told reporters. “We don’t want to speculate on it.”
