The two were on a flight that originated at O’Hare and were arrested upon landing in Amsterdam, Chicago FBI spokesman Ross Rice told the Chicago Sun-Times. The Chicago FBI office is assisting Dutch authorities with the investigation, but the men are not expected to be charged domestically, Rice said. The men’s names were believed not to be on a no-fly list.And another question arises. Were they testing whether they could detonate luggage with a cellphone on one plane while traveling in another?

Meanwhile, FBI agents on Monday visited the Detroit neighborhood where several addresses were found for variations of al Soofi's name, according to neighbors who declined to give their names to The Associated Press.If someone doesn't have their family with them here, that's suspicious.
Al Soofi's brother, Murad al Soofi, told the Detroit News his brother moved to Michigan from Yemen in 1997. He told the newspaper al Soofi has a wife and five children in Yemen.
Both al Soofi and al Murisi had also previously lived and worked in Dearborn, Mich., and their families were prominent in the Yemeni-American community there, Imad Hamad of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee told the Detroit News.
Al Soofi moved to Tuscaloosa, Ala., earlier this year, after he lost jobs in Detroit and the suburb of Monroe, his brother told the Detroit News. Murad al Soofi told the newspaper his brother had been flying to Yemen to visit his family, but didn't have an explanation of why he wanted to change flights at O'Hare, the newspaper reported.
