Theresa May assassination plot suspect in court

Police say the men who appeared in court Wednesday were arrested last week in raids that took place in London and the city of Birmingham.

Naa'imur Rahman, of north London, has been charged with preparing to commit acts of terrorism. "Essentially police believe that the plan was to launch some sort of improvised explosive device at Downing Street and in the ensuing chaos attack and kill Theresa May, the prime minister", said Sky's Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt.

Andrew Parker, director general of the MI5 security service, briefed cabinet ministers on the plot, Sky said.

The report also said that between March and June, there had been four terror attacks in London and Manchester which killed 36 people and injured another 200. They would then attempt to kill Theresa May armed with a suicide vest, pepper spray and knife in the chaotic aftermath.

The police said there were now 500 counter-terrorism investigations involving 3,000 people and more than 20,000 other people have been investigated in the past. When asked about his nationality in court, Imran said he was Bangladeshi British.
