Authorities are leaving no stone unturned in searching for all the explosives sent from Yemen in cargo1 planes. White House security adviser2 John Brennan says the investigation3 is going on all around the world. NPR's Carrie Johnson has more.
US law enforcement officials say two bombs sent from Yemen and destined4 for Chicago synagogues demonstrate how resourceful terrorists have become. Authorities suspect that printer toner cartridges5 packed with explosives came from an al-Qaeda affiliate6 in Yemen. The same group supported a Nigerian student who flew to Detroit with explosives in his underwear last Christmas. White House adviser John Brennan speaking on the ABC program "This Week".
"We've stayed ahead of a lot of these adaptations of al-Qaeda. We need to continue to do so."Now, the plotters appear to have targeted cargo planes, exposing some vulnerabilities in freight screening. Carrie Johnson, NPR News, Washington.
One of two women taken into custody7 in Yemen in connection with the mail bombs has been released by police. Investigators8 are trying to determine if the explosive packages mailed to Chicago synagogues were designed to go off before they arrived. If that had happened, a lot of people could have died. A spokesman for Qatar Airways9 says one of the bombs traveled on two different passenger planes before being discovered in Dubai.
An explosion tore through the main square in Istanbul, Turkey, injuring more than 30 people today. Gul Tuysuz reports the blast is blamed on a suicide bomber10.
Five of the injured are in critical condition, according to Istanbul's police chief. The suicide bomber was killed in the attack. Although no groups have officially claimed responsibility, analysts11 speculated on Turkish TV that the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) organized the attack. A unilateral ceasefire imposed by the PKK ended on Saturday. Other analysts suspected that al-Qaeda was responsible for the attack. Turkey detained dozens of suspected members in raids across the country last week. And the suicide bombing bore similarities to the al-Qaeda-related attacks, which killed 30 people outside the British consulate12 in Istanbul in 2003. For NPR News, Gul Tuysuz in Trabzon.
President Obama ended his last campaign swing before the election at a rally in Cleveland today. He told the crowd voters have the choice when they go to the polls Tuesday.
"Remember I said it is a choice this election. The other side, their main economic idea -- this is their main idea -- is to provide $700 billion worth of tax cuts to the top 2 percent of earners."Meantime, the GOP is portraying13 the midterm elections as a referendum on so-called Obamanomics. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin told Fox News Sunday voters will tell the White House: "You blew it."And from Washington, this is NPR.
The US will get another chance to revive Mideast peace talks, when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits the US next week. He says he will discuss peace efforts in meetings with Vice14 President Joe Biden. Negotiations15 have stalled over continued construction of Israeli settlements. Netanyahu will also be in New Orleans to speak to Jewish leaders.
