Heathrow airport terminal evacuated
by UPI

LONDON - One of the terminals at London's Heathrow Airport was evacuated Tuesday because of a suspicious package as the country is in "critical" security status.

Thousands of passengers were ordered out of Terminal 4 and all roads to it were sealed, The Telegraph reported.

The terminal is used by KLM, British Airways, Qantas Airways and Sri Lankan Air. The evacuation created numerous flight delays, the report said.

Earlier Tuesday, an eighth man suspected of plotting terror attacks in Britain, a medical doctor, was arrested trying to board a plane in Brisbane, Australia.

Australian media identified the suspect as Dr. Mohammed Haneef, a 27-year-old Indian national who had a one-way ticket to India, the BBC reported.

Australian Attorney General Philip Ruddock said investigators were also interviewing a colleague of Haneef's at the Gold Coast Hospital in Southport, in eastern Queensland based on information from British authorities.

Meanwhile, controlled explosions were carried out on suspicious packages in Glasgow, Scotland, and London. They included three fire extinguishers left on London sidewalks near the Hammersmith subway station, the report said.

Britain is at its highest security status after a series of terror attacks were foiled beginning Friday in England and Scotland.
