(Newser) – A fourth doctor  has been charged in the car bomb attacks in London and Glasgow. Mohammed Jamil Asha, 26, is accused of conspiring with two men who tried to blow up a Jeep in the doorway of the Glasgow International Airport, and "others unknown," according to the indictment. Asha is scheduled to appear in court in London today.

The Jordanian-trained doctor was arrested June 30, the day of the Glasgow attack, while driving in northern England with his wife, who was later released. Three other doctors, including one living in Australia, face charges ranging from conspiracy to support to withholding information. An engineer suffering serious burns in the Glasgow attack is still in the hospital and has not yet been charged. (Read more London stories.)
