WASHINGTON — The White House is seeking greater and swifter cooperation on intelligence sharing with the Yemeni government and more opportunities to train Yemeni counter-terrorism teams in the aftermath of the airline package bombs, a senior administration official said Sunday.

The official also said evidence points to the plot's aim to blow up cargo planes inside or en route to the US.

The Obama administration's careful response since the plot was foiled shows the White House's concern that pushing Yemen publicly to ramp up counterterrorist cooperation or to agree to a more visible US military presence could backfire. Washington does not want to raise questions among Yemenis about the legitimacy of the embattled government of President Ali Abdullah Saleh and its dependence on the United States.
