Clinton: Terror plots 'ever more perverse'

A plot by al-Qaeda in Yemen to detonate an upgraded version of the failed 2009 "underwear bomb" has been foiled, according to US officials.

The device was seized abroad by intelligence operatives and is now being studied by the FBI in the US.

Speaking during a visit to Delhi, India, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the alleged plot showed that "terrorists keep trying to devise more and more perverse and terrible ways to kill innocent people".
