Two Men On No-fly List Stopped at Heathrow



The UK’s Mirror News reports two men were stopped from boarding US-bound planes at Heathrow airport just days before Britain’s terror threat was raised to “severe”.

Security sources say an Egyptian was stopped last Saturday as he tried to board an American Airlines flight to Miami. A man from Saudi Arabia was banned from boarding a United Airlines flight to Chicago the next day and sent back to Saudi.

The incidents and the raised threat level follow the failed Christmas Day bombing on a plane over Detroit.

Anti-terror officials said the past week had seen an “unusually high” number of people on their no-fly list trying to board US-bound planes.
