He wanted to be some kind of professional

Here's the raised eyebrow moment of the day: considering the preparation for the 9/11 plot, a surge of al-Qaeda operatives into flight schools, and now the common occupational characteristics of the Haymarket/Glasgow bombers, what was the previous career aspiration of the Glasgow bomber now critically ill from the burns he sustained in the airport attack? --

It has emerged he [Kafeel Ahmed] was an aeronautical engineering student at Queen's University in Belfast.

A spokeswoman for Queen's said Scotland Yard had advised that they say nothing in relation to Mr Ahmed.

It is believed he enrolled for a post-graduate course at Queen's in 2001 and then stayed on as a research assistant until the middle of 2004.
