The CIA thwarted a plot by Al Qaeda's Yemen affiliate to bomb a US-bound airplane around the first anniversary of Osama bin Laden's death, the Associated Press reported.

A counter-terrorism official tells CBS News a device was recovered and it has the hallmarks of previous devices used by al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. The work is believed to be that of bomb maker Ibrahim al-Asiri.

US officials said the plot was an improvement on the design used by the underwear bomber around Christmas 2009 on an airplane near Detroit.
