Heres the link to the website


They are interviewing a witness o the phone now at the scene...

Stating it is was a Jeep Cherokee that was a fire, when driven through the terminal. One of the people in the car was on fire and they all put up a fight when tried to be restrained by police and security staff.

The witness also stated that both people in the car were of Asian/Muslim decent, and after they got out of the car were try to reach to the boot of the car. He is thinking they were trying to detinate a bomb in the car that failed to go off.

I am hoping this was not an attempted suicide bomb!

The airport is now closed to all incoming and outgoing flights.

MSNBC is reporting the two cars involved in the failed bombings in London were stolen in Scotland, but the only connection is speculative.

Police are suggesting that it is not a terrorist attack but a localised criminal event but eyewitnesses say it looked more substantial than that, one of the vehicles occupants was on fire and still put up a struggle after being extinguished by the police... will be interestring to see the outcome.
