A passenger on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit Metro Airport created a mess by lighting what was reported to be firecrackers onboard the flight at the Detroit Airport. The guy injured himself and several other passengers.
Who is this guy and was he arrested?

Federal officials and police are interviewing a Nigerian man, who allegedly tried to "explode" a powdery substance aboard a Northwest flight from Amsterdam to Detroit.
The name of the guy is unknown right now.

The man said he was directed by al Qaeda to explode a small device in flight, over U.S. soil, ABC News has learned. Authorities have no corroboration of that information, and the credibility of the suspect's statements are being questioned, officials said.

It is unclear how powerful the explosive could have been and what the man's intentions were. Initial reports were that fireworks or firecrackers had gone off on the plane.
