THE three doctors accused in relation to the failed London and Glasgow car bombings last June have been ordered to stand trial on October 2.
Sabeel Ahmed, the cousin of the Indian former Gold Coast doctor, Mohamed Haneef, appeared by video link at the Old Bailey from Belmarsh prison, in south-east London, with Bilal Abdullah and Mohammed Asha.
* The nutroots keep telling us that Mohammed Haneef was ‘innocent’- and want to give him a new visa…
The two attempted bombings, on June 29 and 30 last year, were described by Justice Calvert Smith, the presiding judge in Friday’s pre-trial hearing, as “notorious and serious”.
Abdullah and Asha have been charged with conspiring with others to cause explosions, while Ahmed is charged with withholding information relating to a terrorist act. His brother, Khalid Ahmed, died from burns sustained when he allegedly drove a Jeep Cherokee loaded with propane canisters through the doors of Glasgow Airport.
Abdullah was arrested at the scene and is believed to have been a passenger in the car.
During the pre-trial hearing, Ahmed and Abdullah initially appeared friendly, laughing and speaking quietly with one another until Asha arrived. Asha embraced Abdullah and the two men whispered throughout the hearing, but he did not acknowledge Ahmed. Ahmed is represented by the UK ‘human rights’ lawyer, Imran Khan.
* Check out the ‘Imran Khan’ link, the creep is himself an old jihad hand ‘against Islamaphobia and Racism’- you can’t make this stuff up…
SINGAPORE – Two men engaged in activities that posed a potential terrorist threat have been detained in Singapore, authorities said Thursday.
Two of the men, Muhammad Zamri Abdullah, 26, and Maksham Mohammad Shah, 26, were detained in December under Singapore’s Internal Security Act, which allows for detention without trial.
* No internet,-no jihad: its all our fault, right?
The ministry said Zamri picked up radical ideas through the Internet and had ‘gone overseas to join a ‘mujahedeen network’ so that he could wage armed jihad overseas and die a martyr,’ the ministry said.
In the early morning hours today, Turkish police teams conducted simultaneous raids in multiple locations in the southeastern province of Gaziantep, against suspected al Qaeda cells. In one of the houses armed clashes erupted when the suspected terrorists â€“ a father and son â€“ refused to surrender and opened fire on security forces. The police said the operation that began at 2:00 AM ended at Noon. In that location the two presumed al Qaeda terrorists were killed and a third person was detained.
A police officer was also killed and four others were wounded, two critically, in the operation against al Qaeda operatives that were planning a major attack in Turkey, according to security sources.
During the multiple raids 20 people were detained and arms, ammunition, explosives and lots of documents were seized.
