LONDON (Reuters) - British police arrested two men on a Pakistan International Airlines flight on Friday on suspicion of "endangerment of an aircraft" after it was escorted to a different airport by fighter jets.

The plane had been flying from Lahore in Pakistan to Manchester, before it was diverted to Stansted, in Essex, southern England.
