Two men were arrested after U.K. fighter jets intercepted a plane from Pakistan, when an “angry passenger” made a bomb threat.

Pakistan International Airlines says the plane was headed to London, but was diverted to Manchester Airport, after the passenger told a flight attendant he planned to set off a bomb.

There were 308 passengers on board.
