Defense: Deal discussed in Detroit plane attack

Lawyers for the Nigerian charged with trying to blow up a plane near Detroit on Christmas say they've talked to prosecutors about resolving the case with a deal.
The disclosure was made Thursday in a court filing that seeks a new deadline to challenge evidence against Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. The deadline is Friday.
Abdulmutallab is accused of trying to set off a bomb hidden in his underwear aboard a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit last year. He's due in federal court Monday for a pretrial hearing.
The court filing says attorneys have met with prosecutors on "multiple occasions" to "explore options for resolution of this case."
