Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Salih today reportedly announced that at least one woman is under arrest for allegedly sending mailbombs found on cargo1 planes in Dubai and England. Oliver Holms is in the Yemeni capital Sanaa where he says security is tighter than usual.

"The vigil is very tense in the capital Sanaa of Yemen. I was speaking to some people around and they were completely shock that terrorist could operate out of Sanaa. In Yemen, Sanaa is the capital of the government's stronghold and believed to be three of al-Qaeda members. People think that they are based in the south in two provinces, one could Abyan, one could Shabwah that it's tribally2 controlled."

The packages found on the two planes were addressed to synagogues in Chicago. UK officials are reporting the bomb found on the US-bound plane onsite Brandon was in fact designed to explode. As Larry Miller3 reports from London, UK officials say an attack was clearly planned.

After convening4 a meeting of Cobra, Britain's Emergency prepared a committee. Home Secretary Teresa May says the explosive discovered on route from Yemen to the US were viable5.

"The target may have been in an aircraft and had it detonated. The aircraft could have been brought down."

She says there may not have been specific target.

"We do not believe that the perpetrator's specific attack would have know the location of the device when he was planned to explode."

May says at this stage there's nothing to suggest another attack is imminent6. She says she'll be in contact with US Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. For NPR News, I'm Larry Miller in London.

As horrors gather in Washington, another city is for rallies which organizers say are about turning down partisan7 divisions. Several new polls are showing voters to be divided and dissatisfied. NPR's Allison Keyes has more on what they're showing.

An Associated Press knowledge network's poll find voters are split right down the middle over whether President Obama deserves a second term. The poll which just tracked a group of 1,200 people since the beginning of the 2008 presidential campaign also finds the statistical8 tie among democratic voters on whether Mr Obama should face a challenge for the 2012 presidential nomination9. Two other polls including one released yesterday by Fox News finds president's approval rating hovering10 between 41% and 45%. In both polls, about a half of those survey disapprove11 President Obama's performance. But polling enormous this early often don't predict election results. Both President Clinton and Ronald Reagan had approval ratings two years into their terms similar to Mr Obama's and both were re-elected. Allison Keyes, NPR News, Washington.

The US says today it has a national interest in resolving disputes in Asian waters. This comes as China and Japan have been in a standoff that began more than a month ago when a Chinese fishing vessel13 and two Japanese patrol boats collided near disputed island. The two countries did make attempts to cool down their differences today, briefly14 meeting before the start of an Asian regional summit. But the Japanese prime minister said a full bilateral15 meeting did not materialize.
