US 'bomb factory' house set alight by police

California authorities have set fire to a house packed with home-made explosives, saying the controlled blaze was the only way to deal with the bomb-making equipment.

The owner of the house, in suburban San Diego, was arrested last week, accused of assembling chemicals allegedly used by Middle Eastern suicide bombers.

Rajesh Mirchandani reports from Los Angeles.
