Judge Hears From Lawyers in Failed Plane Bombing

DETROIT -- Federal prosecutors say they've turned over the vast majority of evidence to lawyers for a Nigerian man charged with trying to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab (OO'-mar fah-ROOK' ahb-DOOL'-moo-TAH'-lahb) didn't attend a five-minute hearing Tuesday in Detroit federal court.

U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds says she wants another update from lawyers Sept. 13. She'll set a trial date then.

Abdulmutallab is accused of trying to detonate a bomb hidden in his underwear on a flight from Amsterdam. He's being held at a federal prison in Milan, Mich.

Nigeria is asking to receive all future court filings to ensure Abdulmutallab's rights are honored.
