Police searched several homes near Glasgow International Airport on Sunday in connection with a suspected terrorist attack on its main terminal and a foiled car bomb plot in London, police said.
The searches, which began early Sunday, were taking place about seven miles (12 kilometers) west of central Glasgow, police said in a brief statement. That is about one mile (1.5 kilometers) from the airport.
"We can confirm as part of the ongoing inquiry into the incidents in Glasgow airport and London, a number of houses in the Renfrewshire area are being searched," it said. "Due to the nature of this investigation, no further information will be released at this time."
