    ROMULUS, Mich. (WJBK) - A senior U.S. official says a Northwest Airlines passenger from Nigeria claims h e was acting on behalf of al-Qaida when he tried to blow up a flight Friday as it landed in Detroit.

    Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., identified the suspect as Abdul Mudallad, a Nigerian. King said the flight began in Nigeria and went through Amsterdam en route to Detroit. One of the U.S. intelligence officials said the explosive device was a mix of powder and liquid. It failed when the passenger tried to detonate it.

    The passenger was being questioned Friday evening. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is continuing. Fox 2 spoke with passangers as they were released from that flight.

    How does something like this even begin to happen? The attacker is listed on the Do Not Fly list and gets on a plane in Nigeria, bound for the US, carrying explosives.
    I feel so comforted by knowing the FBI is now investigating and upping security at several airports. With a proactive response like that nobody should be worried
