Glasgow Airport Attacked

Posted by Mike on June 30, 2007

Only a day after the UK thwarted a terrorist attack in London, a flaming car was driven into Glasgow airport’s main terminal. Police have arrested two Asian men in connection with this apparent attack. Since this story is still developing, officials aren’t saying if this attack is related to yesterday’s foiled plot.

Taking no chances, the British Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre wisely raised the UK’s terror alert to “critical,” which is described as a threat level which anticipates an imminent attack. Our prayers are with our British friends.

UPDATE: Police have now officially confirmed what most of us thought. It was a terrorist attack and they are assuming it was related to yesterday’s plot.

UPDATE 2 (JULY 1):  I guess by “Asian” they meant well-off Muslim doctors.
