OTTAWA, Ontario — Canada's transport minister announced Monday that Canada is banning all air cargo from Yemen.

Transport Minister Chuck Strahl said the move was not prompted by any specific threat.

He said it is being done as a precaution to ensure Canadians are aware that air travel is safe.

Canada's decision comes as similar action is taken by other countries following the discovery of an elaborate mail-bomb plot that originated in Yemen.
