A terror suspect involved in bomb attacks on London and Glasgow was a known associate of a senior al-Qaeda figure caught plotting to blow up passenger jets four years ago.
Kafeel Ahmed, an Indian doctor, knew one of the terror group’s most high-profile bomb makers in Europe, according to senior security sources.

Ahmed, 27, who remains critically ill in hospital after the failed car bomb attack last weekend on Glasgow Airport, was involved with convicted terrorist Abbas Boutrab when he was planning to target airliners.

He met Boutrab in Belfast while studying for a master’s degree in aeronautical engineering at Queen’s University between 2001 and 2004. The disclosure will raise fresh questions over the extent of information held by MI5 on suspects involved in the attempted car bomb attacks on London and Glasgow.

Some of those involved in the plot may have been double agents and some may have been patsies.

CIA Director Michael Hayden told agency employees on Tuesday via an internal memo that “events in Great Britain since last Friday serve as a reminder — if we ever needed one — that this remains a dangerous world and that our work in defending America is as important as ever.”

This provoked dozens of furious responses from those who commented on the article who accused ABC of directly educating terrorists on how to perfect the construction of a car bomb for the next attack.
