Den palestinsk/jordanske nevrologen Mohammed Asha søkte to ganger om å komme til USA, men unnlot å ta testen som skal til.

Two suspects in the failed car bombings in Britain made inquiries about working in the United States, the FBI said Friday, and police said an Iraqi doctor arrested at Glasgow airport became the first person charged in the attacks.

An FBI spokeswoman said Mohammed Asha and another suspect had contacted the Philadelphia-based Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates, as first reported in The Philadelphia Inquirer. Asha, a Jordanian physician of Palestinian heritage, contacted the agency within the last year, but apparently did not take the test for foreign medical school graduates, said the spokeswoman, Nancy O’Dowd.

«He was applying, (but) we don’t believe he took the test,» she said. She could not confirm the name of the second suspect to make inquiries.
