LAWFUEL – The Law Newswire – Among the arrests made by London Police after the Glasgow Airport and London Car Bomb Attempts were two doctors.
One was one of two men who tried to drive a blazing Jeep packed with petrol, gas canisters and nails into Glasgow Airport on Saturday.
Police are still investigating the precise links between that attack and the two Mercedes car bombs left in the West End of London early on Friday.
Both doctors were working at UK hospitals and were apparently here legally. The revelation raises the horrifying prospect that Al Qaeda propaganda is reaching beyond disaffected young Muslims.
“These are highly-educated, articulate and intelligent people,” one security source said.
“They are men trained to heal but they were planning unbelievable atrocities.”
Two of the five people arrested were a woman of 27 and her 26-year-old husband, boxed in by unmarked police cars as they drove on the M6 in Cheshire. Other motorists said the woman was wearing a Muslim veil.
