British police have detained two more suspects in the recent series of attempted car bombings in London and Scotland's largest city, Glasgow.
Authorities say the suspects, age 25 and 28, were arrested Sunday in Glasgow under anti-terrorism laws. British Home Secretary (Interior Minister) Jacqui Smith told parliament six people are under arrest in the case. She said a seventh is in a Glasgow hospital for treatment of severe burns received Saturday when he rammed a vehicle into the city's airport terminal.
She said police have searched 19 locations around the country, but provided no details about those held. British news media reports say at least one of those held is a physician who completed medical school in Jordan.
Friday, two unexploded car bombs were found in the entertainment district of central London. Authorities found gas canisters, gasoline and nails inside the vehicles.
The Home Secretary thanked all those involved in security operations. She called the attacks actions against the values shared by all law-abiding citizens and said the public will not be intimidated by terrorism.
