(CNN) -- A 27-year-old Indian national, detained in Australia, has been charged in connection with terrorism incidents in Britain last month, Australian authorities told CNN.
The man has been identified by British media reports as Queensland hospital Dr. Mohammed Haneef.
He was detained July 2 at the Brisbane, Australia, airport while he was waiting to catch a flight out of the country, officials said.
He was recruited to work in Australia from Halton General Hospital near Liverpool, England, an official at that hospital told CNN.
He graduated from Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences in Bangalore, India, in 2005.
Haneef has been charged with providing support to a terrorist organization. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in jail. Haneef is to appear in court in Brisbane, Australia, on Saturday.
On Monday, an Australian judge ruled that police should have another 48 hours to question Haneef about the failed car bomb attacks in London's bustling theatre and nightclub district and a Glasgow airport in late June.
Haneef is one of six Indian doctors questioned in Australia over the suspected al Qaeda-linked plot in Britain.
