Tests on a failed parcel bomb sent on a US-bound cargo flight last month show it could have been designed to detonate over the eastern US, say police.
The bomb was found in a printer cartridge on a plane in a UK airport, after being posted from Yemen.
“If the device had activated it would have been at 1030hrs BST (0930 GMT) on Friday 29 October 2010,” said British police.
A second mail bomb, also sent from Yemen, was intercepted in Dubai.
