Impassive and staring straight ahead, an Iraqi doctor appeared in court Saturday, the first suspect to face charges over a plot to bomb London's entertainment district and Glasgow's main airport. Police stepped up security across the capital, where Prime Minister Gordon Brown laid flowers outside one of the train stations hit exactly two years ago in suicide bombings that killed 52 commuters and exposed Britain's vulnerability to homegrown terrorists. Bilal Abdullah, a 27-year-old doctor born in Britain and raised in Iraq, appeared at City of Westminster Magistrates Court amid tight security after he and another man allegedly crashed a Jeep Cherokee laden with gas cylinders and gasoline into the main terminal of Scotland's busiest airport. Accused of conspiring to cause explosions, he is the first person to be charged among eight suspects arrested over the foiled car bomb attacks in London and Glasgow a week ago.
