Glasgow Airport attack man dies


Kafeel Ahmed was an engineer with a PhD


Glasgow attack

A badly burned man detained after the suspected* terror attack at Glasgow Airport has died in a Glasgow hospital.
Kafeel Ahmed was one of two men held at the airport after a Jeep struck the terminal and burst into flames.
The 27-year-old, from Bangalore, India, had suffered burns to 90% of his body when he was arrested.
The second man in the vehicle - Iraqi doctor Bilal Talal Samad Abdullah - has since been charged with conspiracy to cause explosions.
The circumstances surrounding the death have been reported to the procurator fiscal.
Armed guard
The man died in Glasgow Royal Infirmary on Thursday evening. He had been transferred to the specialist burns unit there from the Royal Alexandra Hospital, in Paisley.
He was being kept under armed guard and had been described by health officials as being in a critical condition.
Contrary to earlier reports, Ahmed was not a medic but an engineer with a PhD in design and technology.
Images of Ahmed being detained at Glasgow Airport have been shown around the world.
Passengers used their cameras and mobile phones to record how an off-duty policeman used a fire extinguisher to try to save the terror suspect after he drove a second-hand Jeep packed with propane gas canisters into a doorway.
The airport incident took place on 30 June


Ahmed studied at Queen's University in Belfast where he completed a post-graduate course in aeronautical engineering in 2001.
He stayed in the city for a further three years as a research assistant.
Ahmed studied for his PhD in the department of design and technology at Anglia Polytechnic University (now called Anglia Ruskin University) in Cambridge.
The incident at Glasgow Airport has resulted in Bilal Talal Samad Abdullah being charged with conspiracy to cause explosions.
Ahmed's brother Dr Sabeel Ahmed, who was arrested near Liverpool's Lime Street station on 30 June, has also been charged under the Terrorism Act.
The 26-year-old is accused of not disclosing information that could have helped police arrest a suspected terrorist.
Another doctor has also been charged in connection with the Glasgow attack and the two earlier failed car bombings in London.


* What's this suspected bullshit about???? I don't think he was trying to check-in or visit the Tie Rack.

Oh well, lifes a bitch and then you die................ In his case a long, slow, painful death. Who could ask for anything more?

heh, heh......yet you may be surprised by how many of these Scientists heading many such Research Institutes have actually reverted to faith! heh, heh......ofcourse, the Father Christmas/Tooth Fairy analagy really does not merit relevance in this instance! heh, heh........

I think the word 'faith' is being used in the same sense as the word 'Cherokee' means human being (in Lakota).

"Dances With Wolves" was very educational.

Oh, so you worship (or fear) a vicious and vengeful God? That's nice.
