WASHINGTON (AP) - August 30, 2010
The official said a cell phone taped to a Pepto Bismol bottle
and a knife and boxcutter were found in luggage believed to belong
to Ahmed Mohamed Nasser al Soofi. The official spoke on condition
of anonymity because there was an ongoing investigation.
Homeland Security spokeswoman Amy Kudwa said once officials
found suspicious items in luggage associated with two passengers on
Sunday night's flight, they notified the Dutch authorities.
Kudwa said none of the items found were considered dangerous
"in and of themselves."
