    Armed police in London stormed a Gulf Air flight from Bahrain minutes after touchdown at London’s Heathrow Airport on Tuesday afternoon to apprehend a man over an alleged kidnapping plot, British media reported.
    “At around 3pm on Tuesday, March 20, Met officers arrested a 29-year old man on board an inbound flight to Heathrow from Bahrain,” the Daily Mail quoted a Met Police spokesperson as saying. “The male was arrested in connection with a kidnap allegation of December 19, 2017.”
