British: Bombing suspects recruited here
by UPI

LONDON -- British intelligence officials said they believe the doctors suspected in the failed car bombings in England and Scotland were recruited in Britain.

The Telegraph reported Wednesday that British officials said they had no reason to believe the doctors had been recruited by al-Qaida before joining the National Health Service.

U.S. officials have said the doctors may have recruited in Iraq three years ago.  Seven of the eight suspects arrested in the attempted car bombings in London and Glasgow, Scotland, are either doctors or medical students. Seven were arrested in England and Scotland and one was arrested in Australia.

At least some of the doctors were known to British intelligence officials, the Telegraph reported. At least one was on a watch list of people whose travel is monitored and others were on an MI5 database of suspected terrorism supporters.

The suspects had not been involved in other plots but were "people who knew people," sources told the London newspaper.
