Yemeni authorities on Saturday arrested a woman suspected of sending two mail bombs found on cargo planes and are searching for more suspects believed to be linked to al-Qaida,Yemeni security officials said.

The officials said the woman was detained as part of the manhunt as authorities search for a number of suspects believed to have used forged documents and ID cards that played a role in the plot that was thwarted Friday.

Meanwhile, travelers at LAX appear to be taking the stepped up security presence in stride.

“Well you know, everyone is scared because these days, you never know. In the streets, in the airports, you never know,” one traveler said as she prepared for her flight to Mexico.

“I think its good they step up the security but I think the odds that something happening to us are pretty slight, so I’m OK,” said Paul, who was headed to Miami.

Some people are even putting a positive spin on traveling this weekend because of the beefed up security.

“I feel like I’m in a good place traveling today,” another airline passenger said.

Others, however, expressed concern that because of the beefed up security, the resulting delays could make them late for connecting flights.
