    LONDON - The FBI said Friday that two suspects in the failed car bombings in Britain had made inquiries about working in the United States, and an Iraqi doctor arrested at the attack on Glasgow airport became the first person charged in the terror plot. Prime Minister Gordon Brown warned Britons to expect increased security measures to guard against more attacks, but he expressed confidence investigators were unraveling the group behind the bombing attempts in London and Glasgow. "From what I know, we are getting to the bottom of this cell that has been responsible for what is happening," Brown...

    A GIFTED brain surgeon is believed to be the mastermind of a ring of foreign doctors behind the London and Glasgow car bomb plots. British police suspect Jordan-trained neurologist Mohammed Jamil Abdelqadar Asha, 26, headed a network of medics intent on unleashing terror. Three doctors and two trainees are among seven people being quizzed in the UK over the car bomb plots. Several people arrested in connection with the terror attacks were traced via call logs from two mobile phones that failed to detonate in the nightclub car bombs. Suspected plot ringleader Dr Asha is a neurologist who was born...

    He looks like the perfect husband and doting father - but Dr. Mohammed Asha was on a secret al Qaeda terror mission in Britain that was carefully plotted years ago in Iraq, intelligence sources claimed yesterday. New disclosures emerged about the alleged double life of the brilliant 26-year-old neurosurgeon who is a suspected ringleader of the London and Glasgow car-bomb sleeper cell. Asha, born into a Palestinian family originally from the city of Hebron in the West Bank, was destined for a great medical career, scoring the third-highest mark on the University of Jordan's medical-school entrance exam. In 2004, he...

    LONDON (AP) - At least three physicians were identified Monday among suspects arrested in Britain's failed car bomb attacks, and authorities announced three new arrests—including a doctor in Australia—as the investigation spread overseas.

British police confirmed a Palestinian doctor and Iraqi physician were among those held, while Australian officials said a foreign doctor working there had been detained in the case. Officers used heightened stop-and-search powers and armed response vehicles to...

Speaking from that country, his father insisted that "he has not undertaken any kind of activity of this nature." He has appealed to Jordan's King Abdullah to intervene in the case. Mr Asha, a retired English teacher, said his son's only goal was to "return from Britain...

    A COMBINATION of luck and incompetence prevented a terrorist attack on Glasgow Airport "on the scale of Lockerbie", according to a security expert. As Alex Salmond pledged a swift return to "business as usual" after a Jeep carrying gas cylinders and petrol rammed into a packed terminal building on Saturday, Clive Fairweather advised the First Minister to be "more circumspect" following the first international terrorist attack to ever target Scotland. It emerged yesterday that those responsible - one of whom remained critically ill in hospital after suffering massive burns - were not "home-grown" terrorists but had moved to Scotland only...
