Glasgow suicide bomber left will vowing to avenge Muslim killings to OsamaOctober 11th, 2008 - 12:43 pm ICT by ANI
London, Oct 11 (ANI): The court hearing the Glasgow Airport car bomb case was told yesterday that the terrorist who led the mission had left a will addressed to Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden that he planned to kill in revenge for injustices against Muslims by the British and US soldiers.
The draft will written by NHS doctor Bilal Abdulla (29), the terrorist, was found on a badly-burnt laptop in the remains of a Jeep Cherokee that ploughed into the Airports main terminal last year
According to The Sun, the computer also contained videos of attacks on allied forces in Iraq , coffins of US soldiers and clips of speeches by al-Qaeda leader Bin Laden.
Prosecutor Jonathan Laidlaw QC said that Abdulla wrote the document because he expected to die alongside the Jeeps driver Kafeel Ahmed (28). Abdulla, of Houston , near Glasgow , and a third man, Mohammed Asha (28) deny conspiring to murder and cause explosions.
The terms in which it is written expose that the defendants position is a lie. The attacks he was planning were intended to kill, the paper quoted Laidlaw as saying.
Ahmed died several weeks later from burns.
Abdulla, who was arrested at the airport, and Asha of Newcastle-under-Lyme both NHS doctors set up the suicide attack after attempts to detonate car bombs in London the previous day failed, the Woolwich Crown Court was told.
Laidlaw said that CCTV footage captured Abdulla and Ahmed catching rickshaws to escape after parking two cars full of incendiary chemicals in the West End . After only one of four bombs partially exploded the men returned to Scotland via a meeting with Asha at Stokes Royal Infirmary.
They then went to Abdullas bomb factory home and prepared the vehicle for the Glasgow attack, Laidlaw said.
Asha was arrested that evening and a hoard of extremist material was discovered at his home, the prosecution claimed. (ANI)
