Allegedly two of the suspect terrorists held by Police for the Glasgow and London bombings attempts are NHS Doctors.
One of the doctors was the person to emerge on fire from the burning SUV Jeep at Glasgow Airport and is said to be from Iran. The other alleged doctor arrested on the M6 and is said to be of possible Jordanian origins and is thought to be behind the planning of the attacks.
The net continues to tighten around the suspect terrorists, with five arrests to date involving 4 men and 1 woman. this includes the two arrested at Glasgow airport. All of whom are said to be from middle eastern countries, including Iran and Jordan.
It is expected that the Police will have completed the arrests phase by tommorrow evening as the two mercedes cars that failed to detonate in London provide the police with a wealth of forensic evidence, which were packed with petrol, nails and gas cannisters left outside the Tiger Tiger nightspot in Haymarket early on Friday. One of which had been towed away by parking wardens to a nearby car pound.
Earlier the New Prime Minister Gordon Brown said "it is clear that we are dealing, in general terms, with people who are associated with al-Qaida." and warned that the threat would be "long term and sustained", but that the country would not be cowed by the plot targeting central London and Glasgow's airport.
The fact that all five arrested today are of middle eastern origins and not British nationals, supports the view that this attack may be directly linked to Al Qeeda and planned to coincide with Tony Blair leaving office.
The threat level in the UK was raised to the highest level Critical, following the attacks and in advance of the 2nd anniversary of the July 7th 2005 bomb attacks.
