Bomb suspect 'not radicalised at UCL'
Friday 08 October 2010
Students at the university attended by an alleged bomber will stay at risk of radicalisation for as long as it retains its "educational mission and character", an inquiry found.
But it said there was no evidence Umar Abdulmutallab was radicalised while studying engineering at University College London. Mr Abdulmutallab, 23, is accused in the US of trying to ignite a bomb on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on Christmas Day last year after allegedly training in Yemen with al-Qa'ida. The Nigerian, now known as Umar Farouk, attended UCL from 2005 to 2008 and led its Islamic Society for a year.
The panel set up by the university council called for a review of UCL's code on freedom of speech to reduce the risk of students being radicalised.
