Investigation Into Alleged Northwest Airlines Terrorist Leads To Dubai

Dubai is the scene of part of the probe into the background of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian national who allegedly attempted to blow a hole in the side of a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam as it approached Detroit Metro Airport on Christmas Day.

Abdulmutallab had attended a prestigious Australian university in Dubai but left for no apparent reason in July.

Authorities there are looking into his known associations in an attempt to get a better handle on what led up to his attempting to set off an incendiary device on the plane.
