122. Guardian: Glasgow suspect moved to burns unit (Australian police raid hospitals)
Source: The Guardian

Glasgow suspect moved to burns unit

Man still in critical condition after airport attack
Australian police seize files in hospital raids

The suspect fighting for his life after the attempted car bomb
attack on Glasgow airport was today transferred to a specialist
burns unit.

Kafeel Ahmed, 27, doused himself in petrol and set light to
himself at the airport on Saturday.


In a separate development today, police in Australia raided two
hospitals and seized 31,000 documents. Detectives also revealed
that inquiries in Australia - where the Indian doctor Mohammed
Haneef was arrested in Queensland on Monday - had widened to
a third state, New South Wales.

The Australian federal police commissioner, Mick Keelty, said
four search warrants had been executed in Western Australia
and a number of people were being interviewed in connection
with the London and Glasgow conspiracy.


It was initially thought that Mr Ahmed was a medical doctor.
However, it was reported today that he has a doctorate in
aeronautical engineering and has studied at Queen's University
in Belfast and Anglia Polytechnic University in Cambridge.
