LONDON (AP) -- British police say two men have been arrested on suspicion of endangerment of an aircraft after an incident on a civilian plane flying from Pakistan to England.

A jet was launched to divert the Pakistan International Airlines plane carrying nearly 300 passengers to Britain's Stansted Airport on Friday. It was originally supposed to have landed in Manchester.

Essex Police said that two men have been arrested and removed from the plane, which is on an isolated runway at the airport.
