Police Thwart Islamic Terror Plot To Assassinate Theresa May

Two men will appear in court in the United Kingdom tomorrow, accused of planning a suicide bombing on Downing Street and plotting to kill the British prime minister Theresa May in a knife attack.

According to The Telegraph, details of the alleged terror plot were given to Cabinet members on Tuesday during a briefing by MI5 chief Andrew Parker.

Another report by Sky News said that the plot was allegedly planned by an Islamist extremist.

Scotland Yard, military intelligence security service MI5 and West Midlands Police reportedly had been investigating the plot for "several weeks".

Twenty-year-old north London man Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman and 21-year-old Mohammed Aqib Imran from south-east Birmingham have been arrested for "intention of committing acts of terrorism" and engaging in conduct in preparation for those acts.

London police said that two men arrested last week had been charged with terrorism offences and would appear in Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

In March, Khalid Masood drove a auto at pedestrians on Westminster Bridge and stabbed a policeman guarding Parliament.

The revelations come in the wake of a report that showed the Manchester Arena suicide bomb which left 22 people dead in May could have been averted had "the cards fallen differently". He has told about the planned attack in a report to the government on Monday.

Security measures were introduced in the 1970s but were increased in the 1980s as the threat from Irish republican groups grew. John Major, the prime minister at the time, was inside but not hurt.

In 1991 the IRA launched a home-made mortar bomb attack on Number 10.

The IRA had previously targeted prime minister Margaret Thatcher at the Conservative conference in Brighton in 1984.
