UM: Terrorist Suspect

The University of Michigan Health System has issued a statement asking the media to contact the U.S. Justice Department for further information about the patient being treated at UM’s burn center, who was charged on Saturday with attempting to set off an explosive device on Christmas Day aboard a Northwest Airlines flight. UMHS also set out media guidelines: “We ask that reporters, photographers and video crews covering this story remain outside our hospital. It is permissible to shoot still and video images of our facility from public sidewalks, and we will allow television trucks to park on the wide sidewalk near the front of University Hospital/Taubman Center.” [Source]
