LONDON (AP) — British police have arrested three men who allegedly made a bomb threat on a plane at London’s Heathrow Airport.

Police say the Britons were pulled off an Emirates airline passenger jet Friday night as it was about to take off for Dubai. Police say a search of the plane found nothing suspicious. The suspects range in age from 36 to 58.

The other passengers were taken off the plane and put up in a hotel overnight. Emirates says the flight would now leave at 3 p.m. (1500 GMT, 10 a.m. EST) Saturday.
