Detroit terror attack: Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab 'defended 9/11'

Breaking News

Detroit bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab defended the 9/11 terror attacks on New York, saying they were justified by American military activity.

The 23-year-old suspect in the attempted Christmas Day bombing of Northwest Flight 253 is reported to have shocked friends with his hardline views as far back as 2001.

He is said to have justified the plane attacks by saying that US troops stationed in Saudi Arabia since the 1991 Gulf War had "humiliated" Muslims.
