WASHINGTON (AP) - Yemeni authorities arrested a woman Saturday and searched for other suspects linked to al-Qaida's Persian Gulf faction in the plot to mail bombs powerful enough to down a cargo plane.

Officials said the woman was detained as part of a widening search for people believed to have used forged documents and ID cards in the plot thwarted Friday.

Authorities on three continents scrambled to check planes from Philadelphia to central England, recovering two live explosive devices addressed to two synagogues in Chicago.
