A suitcase filled with bomb-making material has been found by British police officers investigating an alleged terrorist plot to blow up US-bound passenger jets using liquid explosives.

The suitcase, containing chemicals and other equipment for a home-made bomb, was found in woods in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, close to addresses at which the 23 suspects in the plot were arrested last week.

A police source said the suitcase contained everything that would be needed to make an explosive device. The suitcase is now being examined by forensic scientists and explosive experts, The Times daily reported.

Meanwhile, a British passenger plane described as belonging to low-cost airline Excel has been diverted to the southern Italian airport of Brindisi because of a bomb scare. The Boeing 767 had taken off from Gatwick near London for Egypt.
