The Life of the Underpants Bomber Mapped

Umar Abdulmutallab's Life Journey Map

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab attempted to detonate plastic explosives hidden in his underwear in a Christmas Day terrorist attack on Northwest Airlines Flight 253, en route from Amsterdam to Detroit, Michigan.

Mibazaar has plotted Umar's life story on Google Maps. The map animates through various stages in the terrorist's life, from his birth in Lagos, Nigeria to his arrest at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport.

It is possible to pause the animated journey at any stage and the map also includes handy forward and back buttons.
