    Born in Lagos, Nigeria
    Attempted to detonate an incendiary device on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit (December 25, 2009)
    Told authorities that he was directed by Al-Qaeda
    He comes from a wealthy background, as the son of a leading Nigerian banker.
    He was on the terror watch list, but not the no-fly list.
    He reportedly used the same explosive, PETN, as shoe bomber Richard Reid, which shows you how well the security procedures adapted after that attack worked.
    In response to the attempted bombing, the TSA banned passengers from getting out of their seat during the last hour of their flight.
    If you get stuck holding it during your next flight, you know who to blame.
    He was subdued by other passengers.
    He gave himself third-degree burns on his legs while failing to bring down the plane.
    His parents had reported him to US embassy authorities, worrying that he had contacted radicals while in Yemen.
    The attack was condemned by Nigeria's Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs.
