Top U.S. security official warns on more mail bombs
October 31, 2010

(JTA) -- "More mail bombs like those that were mailed to synagogues in Chicago may be out there, a top U.S. security official told news shows.

John Brennan, the deputy national security adviser, said on the Sunday morning programs that there might be more mail bombs like the two discovered last Friday. He added that the potential attacks are characteristic of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.

"They are a dangerous group. They are a determined group. They are still at war with us and we are very much at war with them," Brennan told "Meet the Press." "They are going to try to identify vulnerabilities that might exist in the system."

On Saturday, security forces in Yemen arrested a Sana’a University engineering student, 22-year-old Hanan Al-Samawi, suspected of mailing two bombs to the synagogues. Samawi's mother, 45, also was arrested, according to reports.

President Obama said last Friday in a televised news conference that the packages headed for the United States constituted a "credible terrorist threat" and had been addressed to Jewish organizations in the Chicago area."

One of the reported targets was Congregation Or Chadash, which serves gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Jews, and shares space with Emanuel Congregation, a Reform temple, in a building along Chicago's lakefront, according to the Chicago Tribune.-more
