(London)  --  British police say one of the parcel bombs they intercepted last month may have been rigged to explode over the eastern U.S.  The BBC is reporting that British authorities came to that conclusion after analyzing the bomb hidden in a printer cartridge.

Police estimate they discovered the device in an aircraft cargo hold about three hours before it was set to go off.  That bomb and another device found on different plane were addressed to Chicago synagogues.  Al-Qaeda's wing in Yemen has been linked to the failed plot.
