Woman believed to be tied to bomb plot arrested in Yemen

[Update: 303 p.m.] A woman believed to be connected to a plot to send explosive packages bound for the United States has been arrested in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, according to a Yemeni government official and a reporter with the state news agency.

Authorities have scrambled to find those responsible for sending two suspicious packages that were found in the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.

Earlier, Yemeni security officials had surrounded a home where a woman believed to be connected to a plot to send explosive packages bound for the United States was thought to be hiding, President Ali Abdullah Saleh told reporters Saturday.

    Hitler had it right, he placed Jews below blacks...equating Jews to roaches. There is a reason why Hitler and now the Arab world wants to get rid of the Jews.

    osiris zapata. I do not like you. I do not need to offer any explanation other than to write your words are asinine.
    I suggest you pray often asking God for forgivesness and ask him not to punish you. Because I am going to raise my hand and ask him to punish you one of these days.
    The Muslims/Islams are fools. God is one step ahead of them. He prepared over 4 and a half decades ago in the year 1962 for this period of time when the Middle East would be on the verge of nuclear proliferation.

    @Jim You might not like me, but i'll tell you one thing thats for sure, the whole world hates Jew outside of "Israel". The quotations is there because I thought in order to create a country its citizens had to fight for it, and not handed it to them as the United Nations did. Like I said before Jews are cowards.

    "kill the infedels" ring a bell? Yes, the Koran does in fact order this.

    Regarding infidels, the Koran clearly commands Muslims: "Slay them wherever you find them"-Sura 2:191 Theidea that the Muslim religion is about peace is laughable at best.

    If we could all define "infidel" properly, the world would be a better place.
    It refers to insects and disease. NOT PEOPLE.
