Islamic terror plot to assassinate British PM Theresa May thwarted, report says”

The attack on Westminster in March heralded the start of a spate of attacks, with five terrorist atrocities getting through Britain's defences this year and claiming a total of 36 lives in London and Manchester. "It is unknowable whether such an investigation would have allowed Abedi's plans to be pre-empted and thwarted: MI5 assesses that it would not", he said.

"The Prime Minister led thanks to the tireless work of staff at MI5 to combat the unprecedented terrorist threat", said Theresa May's spokesperson, adding, "Cabinet ministers heard that while Daesh suffered major defeats in Iraq and Syria, this did not mean the threat is over".

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

British intelligence have reportedly foiled a plot by Islamic extremists to assassinate Prime Minister Theresa May, a media report said.

Eleven people died when terrorists used vehicles and knives to attack people at London Bridge in June.

The details come hours after an independent review suggested the deadly suicide bombing at Manchester Arena may have been prevented if information had been handled differently by British police and intelligence services.

Downing Street is heavily protected by fortified gates and armed police officers.

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