British authorities have frozen the assets of the only suspect charged so far in the botched terror bombings in London and Glasgow.

The Bank of England, in making the freeze public, also revealed that Bilal Abdullah has had a British passport for at least nine years.

The 27-year-old doctor was born in Britain and raised in Iraq, England and Scotland. The bank said that the government's treasury department had ordered the asset freeze.

Prosecutors suspect Abdullah and Kafeel Ahmed carried out the attempted bombings in London before returning to Scotland, where Abdullah is so far the only suspect to have been charged.
