3 Arrested at Heathrow: No Link to Bombings Yet

From Reuters
LONDON (Reuters) - British police arrested three terrorist suspects on Sunday at Heathrow airport but said they had no reason so far to link them to last week's suspected al Qaeda bombings in London.

"Three people have been arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act at Heathrow airport," Scotland Yard Deputy Assistant Commissioner Brian Paddick told a news conference.

The investigation should have no lack of suspects as the UK is rife with loud-mouthed Islamist militants, including Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammed, leader of the outlawed group al Mujahiroun, which has been linked to al Qaeda. In January the Sheikh threatened Great Britain with suicide bombers.
