FBI: al-Qaida's Yemen group not behind Dubai crash

Source: AP


The FBI and Homeland Security say al-Qaida's affiliate in Yemen was not behind the Sept. 3 crash of a UPS cargo plane in Dubai.

The terror group al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula claimed responsibility for that crash last week along with taking the blame for the recent mail bomb plots.

The FBI and Homeland Security say they do believe the group is responsible for the mail bomb plot, but add that the group falsely took credit for the Dubai crash to bolster their image. This is according to an internal bulletin obtained by The Associated Press.

Crash investigators have found no evidence of an explosion on the UPS cargo plane.
