"In less than two months from the time he officially went under, [FBI informant] Emad Salem uncovered a plot by [militant Islamist] Sheikh [Omar Abdel] Rahman and eleven other coconspirators to strike at New York's landmarks with a series of ammonium-nitrate-fuel oil (ANFO) bombs. In what the Feds dubbed the Day of Terror plot, the devices were intended to explode simultaneously at a dozen locations around Manhattan including the George Washington Bridge, United Nations headquarters, the two tunnels connecting the city with New Jersey–even the building that housed the FBI's New York office." Sheikh Rahman and the others were arrested on July 24, 1993.
