Underwear Bomber, Abdulmutallab Gets Life Jail


Farouk Abdulmutallab was on Thursday sentenced to life imprisonment. His road to prison started on Christmas Day in 2009 when he concealed a bomb in his underwear and boarded a Detroit bound plane. The device however failed to explode, though it produced a flame and smoke which alerted other passengers and he was eventually subdued and the flames extinguished.

In a defiant move, he pleaded guilty and described the bomb he carried as a “blessed weapon” with which he intended to avenge the many Muslims who had been killed across the world. ┬áHe told the court that “the Quran obliges every able Muslim to participate in jihad”.
