The United Kingdom has paid a lot of attention to Iran’s nuclear program so as to prevent future conflict, its [Foreign Minister William] Hague told [the Israeli] President Shimon Peres when the two met in Jerusalem in the afternoon. […]

“There are so many issues on which as a [UN] security council member we have to be very active to prevent future conflict,” he said.

In response Peres said that Iran was inciting terror and that behind “what is happening in Lebanon and Yemen, you will find an Iranian finger.”


excerpts from: Statement by the President

The White House website, 29 October 2010

“Last night and earlier today, our intelligence and law enforcement professionals, working with our friends and allies, identified two suspicious packages bound for the United States — specifically, two places of Jewish worship in Chicago. […]  An initial examination of those packages has determined that they do apparently contain explosive material. […]

Although we are still pursuing all the facts, we do know that the packages originated in Yemen. We also know that al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, a terrorist group based in Yemen, continues to plan attacks against our homeland, our citizens, and our friends and allies.”
