Terrorist monitoring groups say Al-Qaida of the Arabian Peninsula claims its attempts to blow up package bombs on two cargo flights headed to the US cost only $4,200.

In an edition of the Yemeni-based group's online Inspire magazine, it details how what it calls Operation Hemorrhage used common items like Nokia cell phones, and two HP printers stuffed with an organic explosive. The group claims the same method brought down a cargo plane in Dubai.

The group says it's part of a new strategy, to replace spectacular attacks in favor of smaller attacks to hit the US economy. That from Ben Venske's IntelCenter and the Site Intelligence Group.

US officials insist the Dubai cargo plane crash was an accident, not terrorism.
