Plane-spotting in the times of terror

The Delhi Police has arrested two British plane-spotters under charges of spying. This is not the first case of overzealous, humourless officers hounding eccentric-but-essentially-harmless-nerds: some 9 years ago, in a very similar incident, Greece went to the extent of trying and convicting four plane-spotters. Hopefully better sense will prevail in India.
