Terror Arrest In Manchester?

London police had to Taser a suspect at Manchester's airport after attempting to detain him following suspicious activity with a mysterious package:

A man has been arrested under terror laws at Manchester Airport after the discovery of a suspect package. Greater Manchester Police used a Taser gun after the suspect resisted arrest. ...

Police had been called to the airport at about 8.30am after a man was seen acting suspiciously on the airport apron close to stand 26.

"Police attempted to arrest the men who struggled with officers. A Taser was then used to detain the man," police said in a statement.

"The army bomb disposal unit were called to examine the package which was found on the apron...."

The London Telegraph reports that the police will treat this as a terror investigation. More details will likely come later today.
