Bahrain Mirror: Armed British police stormed on Tuesday (March 20, 2018) a flight from Bahrain as soon as it touched down at Heathrow Airport to arrest a man over an alleged kidnapping plot.

The 29-year-old was arrested at 3pm on Tuesday afternoon and was taken to a police station in west London for questioning. Scotland Yard said it related to a 'kidnap allegation' in December last year and added that the incident is 'not terror related'.

The Daily Mail reported that one witness said the man was 'Middle Eastern looking' and was detained just minutes after the Gulf Air plane landed at Terminal 4.
