A Yemeni government official says the Nigerian man accused of trying to attack a U.S. airliner on Christmas day lived in Yemen for two different periods of time, a year from 2004-2005 and from August-December this year.

Yemen's government said Monday that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was in Yemen from early August to early December this year after receiving a visa to study Arabic in a school in the capital San'a. Information Minister Hassan al-Lozy said Tuesday he also spent a second period in the country from 2004-2005.

Al-Lozy also disclosed that the Yemeni embassy in Washington has been instructed not to issue any more visas to students who want to study in the country without Interior Ministry approval.
