A Pakistani Airlines flight from Lahore to Manchester was diverted to Stansted Airport, where security officials arrested two men, both British nationals, on suspicion of endangerment of aircraft. Police said a threat had been made as the plane was approaching Manchester. A friend of Woolwich attack suspect Michael Adebolajo alleged that MI5 had tried to recruit him six months ago. UK extremist cleric Omar Bakri Mohammed claimed to have converted Adebolajo to Islam. Police released two female suspects in the Woolwich attack but continue to hold a third male suspect.
