The terror threat level has been elevated to its highest levels Thursday. British authorities say they foiled terrorists’ plans to blow up planes headed to the U.S. from London’s Heathrow Airport. Airline passengers have to throw out or repack some of their carry-on items by order of the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration.
