Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian national accused of attempting to bomb a United States bound flight on Christmas Day 2009, has changed his plea to guilty.
Abdulmutallab is presently on trail in Detroit after attempting to sneak plastic explosives - hidden in his underwear - onto Northwest Airlines Flight 253 in Amsterdam.
The flight was en route to Detroit, Michigan.
His lawyer told the second day of the trail that the 24-year-old would admit terrorism and other charges.
In the bungled attack, Abdulmutallab caught fire when a bomb sewn into his underwear failed to detonate fully.
If convicted, he faces a lifelong prison sentence.
