UK arrests 2 men on Vegas to London flight

British police say two men have been arrested at London's Heathrow Airport for being disruptive on a flight from the U.S.

Metropolitan Police say the pair _ a 28-year-old and a 33-year-old _ were passengers on a British Airways Flight from Las Vegas and remain in custody after being detained upon arrival at Heathrow's Terminal 5.

The force said there was no indication of any danger to passengers or the plane.

British Airways confirmed a flight from Las Vegas to London was met by police and apologized for any inconvenience to customers.

Neither police nor British Airways would confirm a report by Britain's Sky News that the men were Israeli passport holders who made "threatening comments" regarding Iran.
