British authorities arrested 7 suspected extremists following the bombing attempts this past weekend.
British police held seven people on Monday, after two overnight arrests in their pursuit of a suspected al Qaeda cell which rammed a fuel-packed jeep into a Scottish airport and left two car bombs in London.
Two of those detained were confirmed to be doctors, one of whom qualified in Iraq and the other in Jordan.
The Iraqi-trained doctor was named by police sources as Bilal Abdulla, who worked at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in the Scottish town of Paisley, and the Jordanian as Mohammed Asha. Asha’s wife has also been arrested.
Housing blocks at the hospital, near Glasgow where the airport was attacked on Saturday, were cordoned off by police and two controlled detonations were carried out there on Monday as authorities stayed on high alert.
