Terror arrests : the list of suspects
By Richard Holt and Richard Alleyne
Mohammed Asha was a star student who chose to live and work in Britain because it treated people with "respect and dignity", according to his family.
Dr Asha, 26, one of five children, originally from Jordan, excelled at the Jubilee School, an elite institution in the country's capital, Amman, for children who show academic promise.
After gaining straight As in 1998, he won a scholarship to Jordan University's medical school, graduating in the summer of 2004. He was again top of his class.
However, instead of taking up a post in his native country, he moved to Britain to complete his training.
He arrived first in Birmingham University with his wife Marwa, 27, before switching to Shrewsbury Royal Hospital and the Princess Royal in Telford where, as a junior doctor, he trained under a number of consultants.
After one year of training he took up his current post as a senior house officer at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire, specialising in neurology. By now Dr Asha and his wife had a son, Anas, and the couple moved to a three-bedroom home in Newcastle-under-Lyme, on the edge of Stoke-on-Trent.
According to his neighbours in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Dr Asha was always friendly and immaculately dressed.
Marwa Asha, 27, Dr Asha's wife, was arrested with her husband on the M6 motorway near Cheshire on Saturday.
Bilal Abdulla, the passenger of the Jeep driven into the Glasgow airport terminal on Saturday was an Iraqi doctor who moved to Britain last year.
He qualified as a doctor in Baghdad and started working at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley, four miles from the airport. He trained in the Iraqi capital from before the outset of war in 2003.
In April Dr Abdulla moved into a rented two-bedroom house in the village of Houston, five minutes from Glasgow airport. It was raided at about 4.30am on Sunday.
Neighbours have told how the occupants of the house had been seen driving a range of cars.
Ian Thompson, a Royal Marine, said: "I have seen a light coloured Mercedes in the drive, a silver Peugeot, as well as a silver Astra.
"They sometimes had visitors showing up at various times.
"Once an Asian man in his twenties arrived at the home in a Mercedes at 1am.
"They were not particularly friendly.
"One of the neighbours once knocked on their door to let them know that they had accidentally left their headlights on but they weren't interested in making conversation."
According to Britain's General Medical Council, Dr Abdulla is a Bachelor of Medicine and a Bachelor of Surgery - the standard qualifications for medics.
He qualified as a doctor in Baghdad in 2004 and is registered as a medical practitioner in Britain under his full name Bilal Talal Abdul Samad Abdulla. Sources at the Paisley hospital said last night that Abdulla, was "just under 30".
Abdulla was wearing a white T-shirt and casual combat trousers when he was detained by police.
The driver of the Jeep Cherokee which crashed into the terminal building of Glasgow airport on Saturday.
The man, who suffered 90 per cent burns after setting himself on fire in the attack - is said to be a locum doctor working at the Royal Alexandra Hospital, Paisley, where he is now being treated.
He has been operated on but doctors say his chances of survival are slim.
A man was arrested in a vehicle near Lime Street Station in Liverpool on Monday.
The man is believed to be a junior doctor who works in Liverpool.
Suspects 6 and 7
Two men aged 25 and 28 were arrested in the UK on Monday. Little is known about the men at this stage, other than that they are believed to be junior doctors who lived in a block attached to the occupational health unit at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley.
Police said they were "not of Scottish origin" but refused to elaborate.
Dr Mohamed Haneef, an Indian doctor described as a "model citizen", was arrested in Australia.
Dr Haneef, 27, who trained at a hospital in Liverpool before moving to Australia, was arrested at Brisbane airport as he tried to board a flight with a one way ticket to India.
He qualified as a doctor in Bangalore, India, in 2002, came to Australia in September last year after answering an advertisement in the British Medical Journal.
Dr Haneef was sponsored by Queensland’s health department and granted a working visa. He took up a position as a registrar at a hospital on the Gold Coast, a glitzy holiday resort south of Brisbane.
“[He] was regarded by the hospital as, in many senses, a model citizen - excellent references and so on," according to Peter Beattie, the premier of Queensland, adding that Dr Haneef had “some connections to the incidents in the UK".
He was reportedly arrested after British authorities intercepted a phone conversation with one of the suspects detained in the UK.
No charges have been filed yet. Under Australian law, terrorism suspects can be held without charge for 24 hours and for longer periods with court approval.
A second, unnamed doctor at the hospital is also being questioned by Australian authorities because of information divulged by Dr Haneef. The second doctor was also recruited from Liverpool, although it was not clear where he had trained or what nationality he was.
