Glasgow Terrorist Dies

One of the Glasgow terrorists has died from burns suffered in the attempt.

A terror suspect being treated for severe burns following a car bomb attack on Glasgow Airport has died in hospital. Kafeel Ahmed, 27, was being cared for at a specialist unit at Glasgow Royal Infirmary (GRI) after the incident on June 30 in which a blazing car was driven into Glasgow airport. The terror suspect, who suffered 90 per cent burns in the incident and spent 33 days in hospital before succumbing to his injuries on Thursday evening , was under police guard at GRI after being transferred from the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley.

The engineer from Bangalore, India, was one of two men detained at the airport after the burning car was driven into the terminal building. Bilal Abdullah, 27, an Iraqi doctor, was arrested and charged with conspiring to cause explosions “of a nature likely to endanger life or cause serious injury”.
