RPT: Al Qaeda-Linked Terrorists Working on Non-Metallic Bombs to Bring on Planes
ABC News reports that al Qaeda-linked terrorists are working on new bombs to bring on planes.

ABC reports that this helps explain why U.S. officials earlier this year warned of explosives in shoes, toothpaste tubes and cosmetics.
