Airlines sued over terrorist

A NEW York man is suing two airlines for $10m in damages for injuries he says he incurred when he jumped on a Nigerian man who tried to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner with a bomb in his underwear.

Theophilus Maranga filed the lawsuit yesterday. He named as defendants Delta Air Lines, Air France-KLM and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who is awaiting sentencing after admitting he tried to blow up the plane.
