A Department of Homeland Security official says scanners in place at U.S. airports are capable of detecting a sophisticated underwear bomb that authorities say was made by al-Qaida's Yemeni affiliate. However, some officials say that older metal detectors, which are still used at some airports, might not detect the device. Since 2007, the Transportation Security Administration has installed about 700 full-body scanners at 180 U.S. airports.
