Yemini terrorism update

Posted by wlpo on October 31, 2010

 Qatar (GUH’-tur) Airways says a parcel carrying the mail bomb found in Dubai traveled on two separate passenger planes. The package contained explosives hidden in a printer cartridge and was headed for the United States.
Al-Qaida’s offshoot in Yemen is suspected in the plot. Yemeni police have made one arrest and are hunting other suspects.   Could there be more mail bombs headed to the U.S.? President Barack Obama’s counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, tells NBC’s “Meet the Press” that authorities “have to presume” there might be. He says investigators are trying to determine whether the planes were the intended targets. The packages with the explosives were addressed to Chicago-area synagogues.
