LONDON, England (CNN) -- The man seriously injured in the terrorist incident at Glasgow International Airport on June 30 has died, Strathclyde Police said.

Police would not provide the man's name, saying he had never been positively identified but said his death occurred Thursday evening at Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

Other sources identified him as Kefeel Ahmed, who suffered burns over his entire body from the airport blast and has not been charged.

Ahmed and another man drove a vehicle packed with propane tanks into the airport's terminal entrance in an attempted suicide attack, one day after two explosives and nails-laden cars were discovered separately in London.


Three men, all doctors, have been charged under Britain's terrorism laws: Ahmed's brother, Sabeel Ahmed, 26, of Liverpool; Bilal Abdullah, 27: and Mohammed Asha, 26.

Abdullah was believed to have been the other man in Kefeel Ahmed's vehicle at Glasgow airport. E-mail to a friend E-mail to a friend
