Yemenia Air Cargo Director, ‘Mohammed al- Shaibah’ , Air Cargo Director for Yemenia Airways said to Yemen Post, “No UPS cargo plane left Yemeni lands over the last 48 hours . These accusations are false and baseless .”

He added , “No UPS or DHL cargo packages heading to Chicago through Yemen took place in the last 48 hours as well . ” “All packages are checked very carefully in Yemen, and there is no evidence to prove that this package came through Yemen.”

CNN reported the suspicious package , which contained a “manipulated ” toner cartridge, tested negative for explosive material , the source said , but it led to heightened inspection of arriving cargo flights in Newark , New Jersey , and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and a UPS truck in New York.
