Al-Qaeda hunt in Yemen intensifies

Authorties step up their hunt for al-Qaeda suspects believed to be behind last week's parcel bomb plot.



    Authorities in Yemen have intensified their hunt for al-Qaeda suspects believed to be behind last week's parcel bomb plot against the US.

    The plan was thwarted following a tip-off from a former al-Qaeda member who surrendered to Saudi Arabia last month.
