Aviation officials say Chicago airport security personnel have been alerted to an investigation of suspicious packages on cargo planes in Philadelphia, Newark, N.J., and England.

Chicago Department of Aviation spokeswoman Karen Pride says she can't talk specifically about any stepped-up security efforts or what security teams have been told. She will only say the airports are aware of the situation.

She says the FBI is taking the lead on the investigation.

Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Kristin Lee says the planes landed safely and are being searched by law enforcement.
