[Posted at 12:23 p.m.] The FBI has dispatched teams of explosives experts to the United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates to help in the examination of the printer-related bombs discovered on Friday, a federal law enforcement official told CNN Monday.
The FBI is not sending extra people to Yemen, where the packages originated, at this time, the source said. The FBI has a presence in Sanaa, the capital, so there are FBI people already there.
The official said the focus of the investigation remains overseas and that there are no links to suspects in the United States at this point.
