The would-be bomber who tried to ignite an explosive device on a Northwest Airlines Flight landing in Detroit has been identified as Nigerian Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab.

The 23 year old is an engineering student at University College London.

CNN says he claims to have been acting on the instructions of al-Qaeda.

One of the 278 passengers on board jumped over others and restrained Abdulmatallab.

He sustained burn wounds in the incident.
