Pakistan arrests helped thwart attack on UK planes

And just in the nick of time. Reports say the terror attacks on the US-destined UK flights were planned for the 16th of this month.

A Pakistani connection to an alleged terror plot to blow up multiple airliners flying from Britain to the United States grew clearer Friday as the British authorities revealed the names of 19 suspects arrested the previous day and Pakistan said it had played a key role in breaking "this terrorist network."

Pakistan seems to pick and choose when they will help fight terrorism. At least they came through on this one.
