A Nigerian student accused of attempting to blow up a transatlantic airliner was not radicalised while at a UK university, a report has concluded.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab studied at University College London, one of the leading Universities in the world, before his alleged Christmas Day 2009 attack on a Detroit-bound jet.

But a report for the university said the Nigerian graduate had not turned to al-Qaeda while studying in London.

However, the panel said the risk of radicalisation could not be eliminated.

The report also says the university should monitor those who speak on campus.

Mr Abdulmutallab is currently awaiting trial in the United States accused of the attempted bombing.

Passengers overpowered the former UCL student after he had allegedly attempted to ignite explosives hidden in his underwear.

The student graduated from UCL in 2008, having spent three years studying engineering with business finance.

He then left the UK to study in Dubai – and later joined an Arabic language course in Yemen.
