LONDON -- Another man has been charged with a terrorism offense in connection with last month's failed car bomb attacks in London and in Glasgow, Scotland. Dr. Sabeel Ahmed, 26, who worked in a hospital outside Liverpool, was charged by Metropolitan Police yesterday with possessing information that could have prevented a terrorist attack. Ahmed was arrested June 30, the day that his brother, Kafeel Ahmed, 27, an aeronautical engineer, rammed a flaming Jeep Cherokee packed with canisters of propane and gasoline into the main entrance of Glasgow's airport.

HOUSTON, Scotland -- British investigators have concluded that the two men who carried out an attack at Glasgow International Airport last Saturday had sped there after a failed attempt to bomb a nightclub in central London, a British security official said yesterday. And, for the first time, witnesses, a neighbor and the police have provided descriptions of the two men - Dr. Bilal Abdulla and Dr. Khalil Ahmed - saying they might have lived together intermittently in this placid neighborhood outside Glasgow and that a Jeep Cherokee similar to the one used in the airport attack had been seen speeding around in the weeks before the botched bombing.

GLASGOW, Scotland -- Investigators have identified two "principal protagonists" in the botched attacks in London and Glasgow and are trying to establish how the other detained suspects fit in, a British security official said yesterday. The two principal suspects are almost certainly the two men arrested after crashing their Jeep Cherokee into a terminal at Glasgow's international airport: Dr. Bilal Abdulla, a British-born Iraqi doctor who was formally charged yesterday, and a man known both as Kaleef and Khalid Ahmed, an Indian engineer who is being treated for severe burns sustained in the attack last week.

LONDON -- British police arrested a fifth suspect yesterday in their nationwide manhunt for the perpetrators of failed bomb attacks in central London and at the Glasgow, Scotland, airport. Authorities also searched a suspicious vehicle outside the Scottish hospital where they had taken one of the Glasgow suspects, who suffered severe burns when he drove a Jeep Cherokee into the glass entrance to the main airport terminal Saturday. Security officers also temporarily shut down a portion of London's Heathrow Airport yesterday to investigate reports of a suspicious package.

James McAvoy doesn't look like a traditional movie star. He's not tall, dark or classically handsome. In fact, the 28-year-old Scotsman is rather slight and talks in a brogue so thick at times it makes you desperate for a translator. But the Glasgow native has that indefinable something that makes him eminently fascinating to watch on screen. With that kind of presence and his flurry of recent movies (six in the last two years), he's bound to soon become better known in this country. American movie audiences first took notice of him as the charming faun Mr. Tumnus in 2005's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and then again late last year as the ambitious young doctor to Idi Amin in The Last King of Scotland (a "weak, despicable human being," he says of his character)
