Suspicious Items Found on Cargo Planes

Authorities are investigating three UPS cargo airplanes at Newark and Philadelphia airports after suspicious items were found on board. Authorities are also investigating a suspicious toner cartridge found on a cargo plane in London (though it tested negative for explosive material), packages at East Midlands airport in Britain, a cargo plane in Dubai, as well as a possible explosive device that was found in a UPS truck in Queens, New York. One of the planes from Newark has taken off and landed again in Louisville; authorities are focusing on shipments from Yemen.
