      Talk of war on Iran spurred a nervous pilot to report two Israeli passengers to British police. The police arrested the two men at Heathrow Airport.

      The suspects, aged 28 and 33, were accused of disruptive behavior on their Las Vegas--London flight on British Airways, which has not confirmed British media reports that the men held Israeli passports.

      The two noisy passengers were ”repeatedly disruptive during the flight and had made inappropriate and potentially threatening comments regarding Iran and the possible route of the aircraft,” a source told Britain’s Sky News.

      The worried pilot informed police, who boarded the plane, with guns at hand, after it landed Monday afternoon. Police spokesmen said that the two men did not pose any danger to passengers during the flight.

      British Airways apologized to the flight's passengers for any inconvenience they experienced.
