A man who cops say crashed a Jeep full of explosives into a Glasgow airport a month ago has died of his injuries, the AP reports. Kafeel Ahmed suffered critical burns during the attack and died without emerging from a subsequent coma at a local hospital. Police say he attacked the airport on June 30, the morning after two unsuccessful car bombings in London.

Two members of Ahmed’s family have also been arrested and charged in the attack. Ahmed’s brother Sabeel Ahmed faces trial after being charged with withholding information that could prevent an act of terrorism, and Ahmed’s cousin Mohamed Haneef was arrested and charged in Australia but released for lack of evidence. Jordanian doctor Mohammed Jamil Asha also faces charges in the attack. (Read more British terror attacks stories.)
