SAN'A, Yemen  — Yemeni officials on Saturday said that a woman has been arrested on suspicion of sending the two mail bombs found on cargo planes in the United Arab Emirates and England.

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh told reporters Saturday that the United States and the United Arab Emirates have provided him with information that identified the woman as a suspect. He said security forces had surrounded a house that was believed to be holding the woman.

A security official later told The Associated Press the woman had been arrested. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to release the information.
