Britain foils Islamist plot to kill May

Britain foils Islamist plot to kill May”

Two men are suspected of conspiring to attack Downing Street armed with an improvised bomb, suicide vest and knives.

An Islamist terror plot to assassinate British Prime Minister Theresa May has been foiled by the country's security services who arrested two men in connection with the scheme, media reports said today. There have been at least five terrorist attacks or attempted attacks in Britain so far this year, Sky News reports.

The plot was revealed to the Cabinet yesterday by Andrew Parker, the head of MI5, who also told ministers that security services have foiled nine terrorist attacks on the United Kingdom in the past year.

Britain faces the most acute threat ever from Islamist militants seeking to inflict mass attacks, often with spontaneous plots that take just days to bring to execution, the head of the MI5 said in October.

Butt appeared on the security radar a number of times and was on bail for fraud on June 3 when he, Youssef Zaghba and Rachid Redouane killed eight people in a knife and van attack.

Over several weeks, MI5, along with Scotland Yard and West Midlands Police, had been pursuing the case.

Naa'imur Rahman, of north London, has been charged with preparing to commit acts of terrorism.

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

Imran, of Ombersley Road, in the Sparkbrook area of Birmingham, is charged with preparing acts of terrorism.

It comes as a new report found that security services could possibly have prevented a suicide attack at the Manchester Arena in May.
