LONDON (AP) - Two men have been arrested on suspicion of endangering an aircraft after a plane carrying more than 300 people from Pakistan to Britain was diverted from its original course Friday, officials said. The incident further rattled the U.K. just days after a British soldier was brutally killed on a London street in a suspected terror attack.
A British security official said the situation involving the Pakistan International Airlines flight did not appear to be related to terrorism, but that police were still investigating. He requested anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the investigation.

I’d like to see one get bold with me. They can answer to Mr. John Moses Browning, circa 1911. I carry ALL the time.
Men, or Jihadis?
The killer is boasting about it on video. What else do they suspect it might be? Workplace violence? A demonstration that got out of hand?
This PC language is driving me nuts!
Which of these is closer to the truth?
“A British security official said the situation involving the Pakistan International Airlines flight did not appear to be related to terrorism, but that police were still investigating. He requested anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the investigation.”
“Passenger Nauman Rizvi told Pakistan’s GEO TV that two men who had tried to move toward the cockpit during the flight were handcuffed and arrested once the plane landed. Rizvi said that after the men were taken away, the flight crew told passengers there had been a terrorist threat and that the pilot had raised an alarm.”
If they are endangering it at 30,000 ft, would "passenger endangerment" also be an issue?
I guess that the Brit Security Official is kept out of the loop for plausible deny-ability.
Let's just call him Sgt. Schultz.
Muslims appear to be more bold. And it will get worse.
Well yesterday Obama said he would rather play golf than fight terrorists
Obama would rather play than do anything. This is his first real job.
The Choom Wagon was the zenith of Zer0’s life.
“Pakistan International Airlines flight”
Note to self. Avoid at all costs.
Probably. But he does get a lot of really nice vacations. If only he didn’t have to pretend to be President!
That he did.
“Id like to see one get bold with me. “
On an airplane? Good luck with that.
Gaffer was responding to my comment and I wasn’t talking just about aircraft. I was speaking in general terms such as the attack on the soldier in London and the Boston Marathon. True, it was implied, but Gaffer understood.
Nothing ever appears to be related to terrorism for these folks - can't hardly blame them for taking heart and becoming ever bolder when the reaction is always to downplay the event and then run campaigns to prevent the evil islamophobes from retaliating...
Thanks DJ MacWoW.
