A man was arrested today, and a package was detonated at the Manchester Airport in England. He was reported as acting suspicious on the flight line around airplanes.
An Army bomb unit detonated a suspicious package at Manchester Airport on Friday after police arrested a man under Britain's Terrorism Act, police said.

"At approximately 8:30 a.m., police were called to Manchester Airport following reports that a man had been seen acting suspiciously in the apron area, where aircraft are parked," said a statement issued by Greater Manchester Police.

It makes me wonder what was in the package that they blew up. It will be interesting to see if they ever say what they found after they looked at what was left. If it really was a bomb he could have caused a lot of damage.

Seems he was caught quite quick as the police had seen all on the survalince camera's

The man, who is being held under the Mental Health Act, abandoned his car outside the airport's perimeter fence just before 8.30am

he brief case only contained clothes and papers,
