Bomb suspect had been flagged for check at landing

• AP
 Homeland Security officials say they had flagged the suspect in the Christmas Day airline bombing attempt as someone who should go through additional security when he landed in the United States.

In a statement early Thursday, the department said Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s potential ties to extremists came up in a routine check of passengers already en route to the United States from overseas.
