The United States says that ISIS is believed to be working on a sophisticated new bomb that could be hidden in laptop computers and are capable of evading airport detectors.

The assessment was made following an examination of evidence left behind by ISIS fighters after they were overrun from their position at University of Mosul in northern Iraq this past January.

After Iraqi special forces recaptured the area from ISIS, it was learned that ISIS used the university and its equipment and labs to develop deadlier bombs, according to CBS News.

The ‘new generation’ of explosives are believed to be more powerful and capable of evading detection with scanners typically used at airports, according to US officials.

ISIS bomb makers reportedly tested the new explosives by using the airport scanners that they took from the Mosul airport after the jihadist group overran the city in 2014.

After ISIS was routed by Iraqi troops in January, the group reportedly burned many of the buildings it left behind so as to conceal evidence.

But US officials told CBS News that ISIS fighters left behind enough evidence to give them pause.
