A Jordanian doctor has been charged in connection with foiled car bomb plots in London and Glasgow, police said Thursday.

Dr. Mohammed Jamil Asha, 26, was charged with conspiracy to cause explosions, a spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police said on condition of anonymity, in line with department policy.

Asha was detained on a northern England highway June 30. His wife, Marwa Asha, was arrested on the same date but later released.

Asha is the fourth person to be charged since two cars packed with gas cylinders and nails were found in central London on June 29. The next day, two men crashed a flaming Jeep loaded with gas canisters and gasoline into security barriers at Glasgow airport's main terminal.

Asha is to appear in court Friday.
