Abdulmutallab training video surfaces


A video has surfaced showing Farouk Abdulmutallab, the suspect in the “Christmas Day Bombing” terror plot, undergoing weapons training with al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in Yemen. The propaganda film, obtained by a Yemeni journalist, shows the young Nigerian national among a group of other trainees with weapons ranging from small arms to RPGs and anti-aircraft weapons. Abdulmutallab is then seen giving a statement in Arabic.

The video can be viewed at ABC News.
