BERLIN – Germany's aviation authority said the country has extended its ban on cargo aircraft from Yemen to include passenger flights amid the current terrorist threat.

One of the bombs that was mailed from Yemen and found by authorities was routed to London through the UPS hub in Cologne.

German aviation agency spokeswoman Cornelia Cramer said Monday that passenger flights from Yemen were being suspended until further notice.

Germany stopped package deliveries from Yemen over the weekend.
