Rogers Park synagogue focus of terrorist threat

Jewish organizations in Rogers Park are on alert today after law enforcement agents intercepted two packages containing explosive devices, one apparently headed for a synagogue in East Rogers Park, Chicago Breaking News reports.

Officials would not identify exact destinations for the packages. A U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they were addressed to two Chicago locations — in the East Rogers Park and Lakeview neighborhoods, Chicago Breaking News reports.

The packages were found aboard cargo planes — one in England and one in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The discovery set off a massive international security effort as authorities rushed to track other parcels headed to America from Yemen, searching jets in Philadelphia and Newark, N.J. A passenger jet from Yemen was escorted by U.S. military fighter jets to Kennedy Airport in New York where its cargo was searched.
