Two More Suspects Arrested In UK Terror Plot


July 2, 2007

Two more suspects have been snared in the UK terror plot and it turns out the same cellphone terrorists that planned to trigger death and destruction in London, instead triggered their capture. British Authorities say the two suspects are doctors.

There are reports the would be bombers tried to detonate the two London car bombs several times by calling phones connected to the bombs, but failed.

Police reportedly used those phones to track down the Al Qaeda-linked terror cells. In Glasgow the charred remains are all that's left of a terror campaign that could have been so much worse.

"I'm outraged that there was a terrorist attack but very happy no one was hurt" said an American tourist at Glasgow Airport.

No one was injured, except one of the suspects, who's in critical condition after crashing his burning Jeep into Glasgow's International Airport.

At least seven suspects are in custody for the British Terror Campaign. Police haven't formally identified any of them, but British media widely
reported two as Mohammed Asha, a Jordanian doctor, and his wife.

The British security level remains at its highest, critical, amid fears that key players in the terror cell may still be on the run.

"We need the public to carry on being vigilant as possible around them about the potential threats that might be out there" said Home Secretary Jacqui Smith.

The new threat level gives police new powers to stop and search. There was also stepped up security at London's Heathrow Airport and the Wimbledon tennis championship has made for long lines.

But a patient public realizes the only thing that stopped the terrorists this time was the terrorists themselves.
