WASHINGTON - A flight from Los Angeles to London was diverted to Boston early Tuesday because three Pakistani passengers were acting suspiciously, but nothing amiss was found and the three were released after questioning, authorities said.

United Airlines Flight 934 landed in Boston shortly before 3 a.m., Logan Airport spokesman Phil Orlandella said.

The three Pakistani men were taken into custody and questioned after other passengers complained that they were moving about the cabin, FBI spokeswoman Gail Marcinkiewicz said.

“Some of the individuals were in first class and another was in coach,” and they were walking between the two sections, she said.

The three passengers, who were said to be traveling for business but were not identified, were later released and no charges were filed.

Flight 934 took off from Logan Airport at 11:47 a.m., said Jeff Green, a spokesman for United Airlines.

The three Pakistani passengers were placed on a separate flight to London’s Heathrow Airport, he said.

This is ridiculous. Brown people can't talk to thier friends in 1st class and coach during a 12-hour flight without the FBI being called in, and detaining them? The biggest casuality in this 'war on terror' is people's common sense. We are turning into a scared, xenophopic, society. It looks like the terrorists are winning.

"Excuse me while I whip this out..."

EDIT: "Terror in the skies!" Where's Annie?
