ABC News has obtained four images of the bomb smuggled onto Northwest Airlines flight 253 last Friday. The photos, first broadcast on “World News with Diane Sawyer” as part of a report from ABC investigative correspondent Brian Ross, show the singed underwear of suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab with a packet of explosive powder sewn into the crotch. Ross obtained the photos from a government source. The other images show the package of the PETN explosive powder and the syringe detonator.
