Reuters:

British fighter jets escorted a Pakistan International Airlines passenger plane to Stansted Airport near London on Friday, where police went on board and arrested two men on suspicion of endangering an aircraft.

Passengers were leaving the plane and no one was hurt in the incident, a spokesman for the airport said.

Flight PK709 from Lahore in Pakistan had been due to land at Manchester in northern England with 297 passengers on board, but was diverted shortly before arrival.

No word yet on the suspects or what they did to endanger the plane.

The usual racism. They scramble western jets to frighten the pakistani airliner.

This is true. And remember: this incident has nothing to do with aviation.

Must have been Pakistani Christians waging war on women. Either that or Tea Partiers, or possibly both.

That's the logical conclusion to jump to, right?
