An FBI agent testified today that he did not read Miranda rights to the 24-year-old Nigerian student who is accused of trying to blow up a Detroit-bound jetliner on Christmas Day 2009 because he was worried about other suicide bombers.

In a jury selection hearing, FBI Agent Timothy Waters testified that he questioned Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab at the hospital for about 50 minutes. The hearing will resume Thursday.
