US officials say a plot by al-Qaeda in Yemen to detonate an upgraded version of the failed 2009 "underwear bomb" has been disrupted.

The FBI said the device was seized by intelligence operatives and is in US custody undergoing technical and forensic analysis.

Reports said no target had been chosen and no plane tickets purchased by the time the alleged plot were foiled.

There is no indication on the status of the would-be bomber.
