WASHINGTON — The parcel bombs sent from Yemen destined for the United States have hallmarks of the militant group Al Qaeda or its affiliate Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said on Saturday.

"I think we would agree with that, that it does contain all the hallmarks of al Qaeda and in particular Al Qaeda AP," she said in an interview on ABC News, referring to al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

She also said on CNN that it appeared that the bombs contained the same type of explosives used in the failed Christmas Day bombing attempt of a U.S. airliner flying from Amsterdam to Detroit.
