Police searched several houses near Glasgow International Airport on Sunday in connection with a fiery attack on its main terminal and a foiled car bomb plot in London.
Sunday's police search was taking place in a residential area about seven miles west of central Glasgow, police said in a brief statement. That is about one mile from the airport.
In a nationally televised interview, Britain's new prime minister, Gordon Brown, said the country was clearly dealing with terrorists associated with al-Qaida. And Lord Stevens, Brown's new terrorism adviser, said the two attacks in Britain indicate that "al-Qaida has imported the tactics of Baghdad and Bali to the streets of the UK."
London police said the latest arrests were in connection with both attacks, but did not elaborate. Officials declined to say whether those arrested were men or women, or whether either suspect was believed to be a person seen running from one of the explosive-laden cars in London.
