(AP) WASHINGTON - A video has surfaced showing accused Christmas Day bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab training with al-Qaida in Yemen.
The video, obtained and broadcast Monday by "ABC World News," shows the 23-year-old Nigerian firing weapons and speaking in Arabic about his impending attack. He is shown reading from the Quran and saying, "God said those who punish you must be punished."
A U.S. intelligence official said Monday that the preliminary judgment is that it is Abdulmutallab in the video and the footage is consistent with the understanding that he was in training. It is not clear where and when the video was made. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters.
According to ABC News, the video was produced by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP. Abdulmutallab and others are shows firing at targets, including a Jewish star and one labeled "UN."
