WASHINGTON— The mail bomb found inside a cargo plane north of London could have exploded, British Home Secretary Theresa May said Saturday after investigators completed a preliminary investigation.

May said the plane carrying the package from Yemen may have been the target, and if the bomb had detonated, the explosion could have brought down the aircraft.

"But we do not believe that the perpetrators of the attack would have known the location of the device when they planned for it to explode," May said. "At this stage we have no information to indicate another terrorist attack is imminent."
