Inteliigence officials in Saudi Arabia and the U.S. believe that two bombs sent from Yemen and intended for U.S. bound airliners headed to Chicago, were designed and built by a wanted Saudi bomb maker working with Al-Qaeda. The bomb makers name is Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri and he's topped the Saudi's "most wanted list" since at least early 2009.
al-Asiri is alleged to have designed and built previous bombs used by Al-Qaeda, including the bomb used in the failed attack on a Delta airliner landing in Detroit on Christmas Day 2009 that was sewn into the underwear of Nigerian terrorist Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab.
al-Asiri (seen above) is also believed to have been directly involved in the building of another previous bomb that was placed inside the rectum the his own brother, and used to try and kill the Saudi anti-terrorism chief Prince Mohammed bin Nayef in August of 2009.
The Prince survived the attack with minor injuries, but his attacker did not.
The damage done to the room in Saudi Arabia where one of al-Asiri's alleged previous bombs went off in a 2009 attack. (see above)
