Police searching for clues in three car bomb plots investigated a rented house near Glasgow, where media reports speculated Thursday that bombs had been made. The government lowered the terrorism threat level from critical to severe after the arrest of eight people connected with the three failed attacks, but authorities were still investigating the possibility there may be other suspects on the peripheries of the plot still at large. With all suspects connected to the medical profession, Prime Minister Gordon Brown has ordered an investigation of the procedures of recruiting foreign doctors, which Health Secretary Alan Johnson promised would be done "very quickly." "It is what more we need to do between striking a balance between ensuring that we have people with the right skills in this country to make sure the NHS (National Health Service) works properly and how we ensure we have a proper oversight of security," he told British Broadcasting Corp. radio.
