Homegrown Terrorists

In this Sunday, July 1, 2007 file photo, a member of the police forensic team takes away a gas canister from behind of the back of the burned out Cherokee Jeep at Glasgow International Airport Glasgow, Scotland. The vehicle rammed and burst into flames in a terror attack Saturday that police linked to a foiled car bomb plot in central London the previous day. Both occupants of the vehicle were arrested. Police identified them as Bilal Abdulla, a British-born, Muslim doctor of Iraqi descent and Kafeel Ahmed, the driver. Anti-terrorism officials said Abdulla became radicalized due to the Iraq war. Ahmed, an Indian engineering student, died of his burns. Abdulla was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder and was sentenced to 32 years in prison.
