A Jordanian doctor has been charged in connection with foiled car bomb plots in London and Glasgow, police said Thursday. Mohammed Jamil Asha, 26, was charged with conspiracy to cause explosions, a police spokeswoman said on condition of anonymity, in line with force policy. Asha was detained on a northern England highway June 30. His wife, Marwa Asha, was arrested on the same date, but later released. Asha is the fourth person to be charged since a pair of cars packed with gas cylinders and nails were found in central London on June 29. The next day, two men crashed a flaming Jeep Cherokee loaded with gas canisters and gasoline into security barriers at Glasgow airport's main terminal.
