Parcel Bomb was Due To Explode Over East Coast of U.S.



One of the bombs hidden last month in two U.S.-bound packages from Yemen was timed to explode over the East Coast of the United States, British authorities said Wednesday.

Al Qaeda’s Yemen-based wing claimed responsibility for sending two parcel bombs concealed in computer printer cartridges that were intercepted Oct. 29 at airports in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and East Midlands, England.

Both package bombs were addressed to Jewish groups in Chicago, though officials have said they believe both devices were intended to detonate in flight.
