A man who set himself on fire after allegedly crashing an explosives-laden Jeep into Glasgow Airport died in a hospital on Thursday, Strathclyde Police said Thursday. Kafeel Ahmed, 27, had been in the hospital for a month with critical burns from the alleged attack on June 30, which followed a day after two failed car bombings in London. The other man in the car, Iraqi doctor Bilal Abdullah, has been charged with conspiring to set off explosions. "We can confirm that the man seriously injured during the course of the incident at Glasgow Airport on Saturday June 30 has died in Glasgow Royal Infirmary," said a spokesman for Strathclyde Police, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with force policy. Ahmed, an Indian national from Bangalore, suffered burns to 90 percent of his body and had been in a coma throughout his hospital stay. He had been kept under armed guard at a specialst burns unit within the hospital.
