UAE to review bomb blast claim in UPS jet crash

Says takes Qaeda's claim of responsibility seriously

The United Arab Emirates aviation authority is investigating a claim by al-Qaeda that it was behind the September crash of a UPS plane in Dubai, but has found no link so far, an official said on Saturday.

"The investigations which were carried out and the details collected from the site of the UPS cargo plane crash have not shown an explosion taking place on board the aircraft," the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) said.
