Eighth Arrested Suspect In Glasgow Attack Identified
55 flights were cancelled, and thousands of passengers were
evacuated from London's Heathrow Airport Terminal 4 Tuesday, after
a suspicious package was located.
Terminal 4 is used by such carriers as British Airways, KLM,
Qantas Airways and Sri Lankan Air.
The evacuations were begun after a suspect bag was found around
noon. Britain's security threat level has been at "critical" since
two car bombs were found in central London on Friday and Glasgow
Airport was attacked Saturday by a burning Jeep Cherokee, as ANN reported.
An all-clear was issued and the terminal was re-opened about 5
pm, according to Reuters.
There were three more arrests made Monday in connection with the
Glasgow Airport attack, two medical doctors identified as Mohammed
Asha, from Jordan, and Bilal Abdullah from Iraq, and a third
unidentified person detained in Australia, as reported by ANN.
That third person was arrested while boarding a plane in
Brisbane, Australia, with a one-way ticket to India, and has been
identified by Australian media as Dr. Mohammed Haneef, a
27-year-old Indian national, according to the BBC.
Australian Attorney General Philip Ruddock said a colleague of
Haneef's at the Gold Coast Hospital in Southport, in eastern
Queensland was also being questioned by investigators.
