GLASGOW, Scotland -- A total of 4 arrests are reported in connection with today's attack on the Glasgow airport in Scotland and the car bombs found in London.

A Jeep Cherokee trailing a cascade of flames rammed the main terminal. Police say they believe the attack is linked to the London car bombs.

Five bystanders were wounded, though none seriously.

1 of the men in the car is in critical condition at a hospital with severe burns, while the other was in police custody. Scottish Police Chief Constable Willie Rae says a "suspect device" was found on the man at the hospital. It was taken to a safe location where it was being investigated.

Police later arrested two more suspects in the plots in Cheshire county in northern England as part of a joint sweep by officers from London and Birmingham.
