Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab,Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab:Authorities today have accused Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab, a 23-year-old Nigerian man, of t*rror*sm after an incident today on a packed international flight from Amsterdam to Detroit. According to reports, Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab attempted to light explosives he had strapped to his body – possibly his leg – before being subdued by fellow passengers.278 people were on board the Northwest Airlines Flight 253, when Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab allegedly attempted to light what is being described as a powdery substance. Passengers and flight crew initially thought he was attempting to light fireworks on the flight.

Fellow passengers reported hearing a bang, similar to fireworks, before seeing the suspect wrestled to the ground. He was later carried away, reportedly with his pants leg cut off and his leg badly burned.

The Nigerian man, who has also been named in some reports as Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, was visiting the United States for a religious ceremony. ABC News reports that Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab has said that he was told by Al Qaeda agents to detonate explosives on an airplane over the United States.

The suspect was last known to be studying as a student in London. He is reportedly being treated a local hospital for second-degree burns.
