DUBAI, United Arab Emirates
The United Arab Emirates' two main airlines say they have stopped carrying cargo from Yemen as a precaution following the discovery of two mail bombs shipped as air freight.
The region's biggest airline Emirates and Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways each confirmed the cargo embargoes in response to questions Sunday.
Etihad said it has also ceased cargo shipments from Somalia.
The UAE late last week said it was tightening security at the country's airports to more closely monitor goods from certain unnamed countries.
One of two packages in last week's mail bomb plot was discovered by UAE authorities in Dubai.
