U.K. Bomb, That Never Was, Designed to Detonate in Flight

A device found in the U.K. on a United Parcel Service Inc. plane bound for Chicago on Friday was designed to go off on the aircraft, Prime Minister David Cameron said Saturday. U.K. Home Secretary Theresa May added that the device was powerful enough to bring down the aircraft.

The U.K. doesn't believe it was being targeted in the incident because the attackers couldn't have known the route of the plane.
