On October 4, 2011, jury selection began for suspected terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who was accused of attempting to bring down a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on Christmas Day 2009 with a bomb in his underwear. Abdulmutallab was charged with eight felonies and could face life in prison. Abdulmutallab will be representing himself, and a federal judge ruled that statements made by Abdulmutallab while in a hospital will be admitted during the trial.
