DIVERTED: The former Cat Stevens, the '70s pop singer now known as Yusuf Islam, was denied entry into the U.S. on Tuesday and his United Airlines Flight 919 from London was diverted to Maine, after his name turned up on a watch list, a U.S. transportation security official tells Reuters. In Maine, Islam was questioned and detained by federal authorities who planned to put him on a return flight early Wednesday, the official said. United spokesman Jeff Green said the carrier was asked by the Transportation Security Administration to divert the plane to Maine for security reasons.
