Kafeel Ahmed is now a well known name in not only in U.K. but all over the world. He is a doctor but now he known as a terrorist. 27-year-old Kafeel Ahmed, a terror, suspect horrifically burnt in the Glasgow Airport attack. Doctors in the United Kingdom are to use skin made from Sharks to treat him.

"It tricks the body into creating new skin cells In fact; the expensive process involves doctors placing silicone implants with shark skin extracts on to the burns. After two weeks, the outer silicone layer is removed and replaced with a layer of skin thinner than a graft. Ahmed is being treated with these grafts because there is nothing left on his body that can be used; a chemical in shark''s skin prevents a scar from forming and allows the body to produce a skin-like tissue. Insider said that Ahmed is in a coma. "In the past, pig skin was used to treat severe burns, but the shark skin treatment is used now. a Glasgow Royal Infirmary insider said." He is receiving the latest technology to try to heal the skin -- but there is still little hope of him surviving. Ahmed is a second cousin of Dr Mohammed Haneef, and he is also held in Australia in connection with the foiled terror attack in the UK.some another people said that, "This person is effectively dead already." Australian Prime Minister John Howard denied pressurizing the Immigration Minister into canceling the visa of Mohammed Haneef. Haneef was granted bail by a Brisbane magistrate last Monday but a few hours later Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews revoked his visa. The final decision was taken by Kevin Andrews.
