Infamous "underwear bomber" sues feds over treatment at Colorado Supermax

Underwear Bomber Sues over Getting Harassed by White Supremacists

On Christmas Day in 2009, Abdulmutallab tried to blow up an worldwide flight - with a bomb sewn into his underwear - bound from Amsterdam to Detroit on behalf of al Qaeda, Reuters reported.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that the Nigerian man who tried to set off an explosive hidden in his underwear while aboard a USA airliner on Christmas Day in 2009, on Monday had his life sentence upheld by a federal appeals court.

Dubbed the "underwear bomber", Abdulmutallab is said to be suing the U.S. Justice Department, Federal Bureau of Prisons and Attorney General Jeff Sessions for denying him free speech and religious rights.

Staff members at the Colorado prison facility were also accused of repeatedly force-feeding Abdulmutallab during a hunger strike, using "excessively and unnecessarily painful" methods.

He confessed to attempting to detonate plastic explosives hidden in his underwear and is serving four life terms, plus 50 years.

In the 73-page court filing, first reported by Denver7, Abdulmutallab complains about being in long-term solitary confinement under Special Administrative Measures.

Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini are still unavailable through injury, so United's midfield is likely to remain unchanged. Kasey Palmer and Michael Hefele are ruled out with thigh injuries, while Jon Stankovic is out with a long-term knee injury.

His bomb caused a fire on the Northwest Airlines flight, which had 289 people aboard, as it was approaching Detroit Metropolitan Airport, and he was subdued and restrained by passengers and flight crew.

"Since their imposition in 2012 and continuing until the present time, the SAMs have prohibited and continue to prohibit Mr. Abdulmutallab from communicating in any manner whatsoever with his nieces and nephews", the complaint said.

White supremacist inmates were also permitted to harass him during prayer times, according to the lawsuit.

"This harassment has rendered it extremely hard for Mr. Abdulmutallab to manage the difficulties of the harsh conditions of solitary confinement by taking solace in his religion and religious practices", the lawsuit alleges.

"The restrictions imposed on our client are excessive and unnecessary, and therefore, we seek the intervention of the federal court", said Johnson.

Abdulmutallab, the son of a corporate titan, trained at an al Qaeda camp in Yemen under the direction of US -born Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, according to the Justice Department.
