Man Charged With Planning To Assassinate Theresa May

In the United Kingdom, a man who allegedly plotted to assassinate British Prime Minister Theresa May was charged with terrorism offenses in London on Wednesday.

The 20 year-old suspect, Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman however, did not record any plea in the hearing.

Rahman was allegedly planning to detonate a bomb at the gates of 10 Downing Street and enter the heavily guarded building in the ensuing chaos to kill the Prime Minister. 

He appeared in court alongside Mohammed Aqib Imran aged 21, who is charged with attempting to join the Daesh militant but was not in connection with the assassination plot.

Both suspects were arrested in armed police raids by Scotland Yard’s counter terrorism command in London and Birmingham on November 28th.

May and other members of the cabinet are believed to have been told of the alleged plot by the head of MI5 during a meeting on Tuesday.
