No airport changes expected following new underwear bomb plot

WASHINGTON (AP) - The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee says he doesn't expect any real changes for air travelers following the CIA's seizing of an upgraded underwear bomb.

The FBI is analyzing the device, which doesn't contain metal, so it can slip through airport metal detectors.

The man al-Qaida in Yemen hoped would carry out an attack using the new bomb had actually been working for the CIA and Saudi intelligence.
