NEW YORK — A Bangladesh native accused of trying to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in New York with what he thought was a 1,000-pound (450-kilogram) car bomb pleaded guilty Thursday to terrorism charges related to an FBI sting.

“I had intentions to commit a violent jihadist act,” Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis told the judge. “I deeply and sincerely regret my involvement in this case.”

The 21-year-old faces a possible life term at sentencing on May 30.
