world Updated: Oct 31, 2010 01:51 IST

Yemeni security officials said on Saturday that a girl believed to have sent bomb parcels on two US-bound flights had been arrested in her house in the capital Sana'a.

The two parcels were found Friday at airports in London and Dubai on flights originating in Yemen.

President Ali Abdullah Saleh told reporters that Yemen had received a tipoff about the girl from the US authorities.

US officials had identified the girl through a mobile phone SIM card attached to one of the parcels.
