Two More Arrests Made in U.K. Terrorism Plot

British police have made two new arrests in connection with the car bomb attack on Glasgow's airport Saturday. The attack followed the discovery Friday of two explosives-laden cars in London that were disabled without injury.

According to a police statement, the two, aged 28 and 25 years, were detained as part of the investigation into the attack, in which two men rammed a Jeep into the Glasgow airport, shattering glass doors and starting a fire. They are not believed to be of Scottish origin.

Seven people have now been detained, and an investigation is continuing.
