British Prime Minister Gordon Brown was setting out options for tougher anti-terrorism laws Wednesday, and was expected to propose scrapping limits on how long police can hold suspected terrorists before they are charged with an offense. Brown was making a statement to lawmakers setting out a raft of suggested revised laws, likely to include a recommendation to allow the use of wiretaps in court cases, a practice currently banned in Britain. The proposed changes follow failed attacks last month, when a pair of luxury cars packed with gas cylinders and nails were found in central London and two men crashed a Jeep Cherokee loaded with fuel canisters and gasoline into security barriers at Glasgow airport's main terminal, setting it ablaze. Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said Tuesday she believed that there was now evidence that police needed to hold terrorism suspects for longer before they lay charges.
