Abdul Mudallad: Nigerian Terrorist Suspected of Flight 253 Attack
Representative Pete King has identified the suspect in the Flight 253 terrorist attack as Abdul Mudallad. Various media outlets have reported the name as Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. Whether the suspect is named Abdul Mudallad or Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, this much is clear: the suspect is a Nigerian national who is suspected of an attempted terrorist attack. The Nigerian terrorist, who King says has links to al-Qaeda, allegedly tried to set off an explosive device on a Northwest 253 flight between Amsterdam and Detroit. It is believed that the suspect may have acquired the explosive device in Yemen.
Mudallad is said to have ties to terrorist organizations.
Abdul Mudallad is reportedly being treated for burns while in custody.
