A LONDON student claiming to work for al-Qaeda tried to blow up a Christmas Day flight, FBI sources claimed last night.

The man who was travelling from Nigeria, tried to ignite a “powdery substance” on a flight from Amsterdam as it began to land at Detroit.

ABC News named the suspect as Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, who was said to be an engineering student at University College of London.

He was early today being quizzed by police and the FBI after he told them he had connections to al-Qaeda.

Spokeswoman Susan Elliott said the passenger was subdued immediately.
