Doctors stand trial over airport terror attack


Two doctors went on trial this week accused of plotting the terrorist car-bomb attacks on Glasgow Airport and in London last year.

Mohammed Jamil Asha, a 28-year-old Jordanian, and Bilal Abdullah, 29, from Iraq, are accused of planning an attack in Haymarket, central London, on June 29 in which an unexploded car bomb packed with gas cylinders and nails was found outside the Tiger Tiger nightclub.

The following day, Saturday June 30, two men crashed a flaming Jeep Cherokee loaded with gas canisters and gasoline into Glasgow airport's main terminal causing extensive damage but no injuries.

Kafeel Ahmed, 27, was driving the Jeep which crashed into the terminal. Ahmed, an engineer who rented a home in Houston, Renfrewshire, was badly injured in the blaze and died in hospital a month later.

Mr Abdullah was arrested at the scene and was the passenger of the burning Jeep. Mr Asha, of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, was arrested on the M6 in Cheshire later that day.

Both men worked as doctors in the NHS - Mr Abdullah at the Royal Alexandra Hospital, in Paisley and Mr Asha as a neurologist at the North Staffordshire Hospital. They are accused of conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to cause explosions between January 1, 2006, and July 1, 2007.

Both men have formally entered not guilty pleas. Several days of legal argument are expected at Woolwich Crown Court before the case gets under way before Mr Justice Mackay, in a trial expected to last at least 12 weeks.
