    UK - Terrorist Attack: Glasgow Airport, 30 June 2007

    Flaming Car Rams U.K. Airport; 2 Arrests

    Jun 30, 12:44 PM (ET)
    By IAN STEWART

    GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) - Two men rammed a flaming sport utility vehicle into the main terminal of Glasgow airport Saturday, crashing into the glass doors at the entrance and sparking a fire, witnesses said. Police said two suspects were arrested.

    The airport - Scotland's largest - was evacuated and all flights suspended, a day after British police thwarted a plot to bomb central London, discovering two cars abandoned with loads of gasoline, gas canisters and nails.

    "One has to conclude ... these are linked," Dame Pauline Neville-Jones, former head of Britain's joint intelligence committee, told Sky News. "This is a very young government, and we may yet see further attacks."

    Fox News is reporting that this incident is being treated as a terrorist attack.

    Also mentioned there is heightened security at airports across the USA.

    Keep your eyes wide open!

    Angry

    One of the suicide car drivers in Glasgow has died.

    Cars involved in London bombing are now linked.

    Lots of chatter since April of possible attacks as Brown took over as PM.

    US reviewing alert status at airports.
