TWO British South Asian men appeared in court on Wednesday (6) over charges related to a terror plot involving the prime minister Theresa May.

Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, and Mohammad Aqib Imran, 21, have been accused of planning an attack in Westminster against Theresa May earlier this year.

Rahman, who is Bangladeshi-British, is also accused of attempting to leave the UK to join the so called Islamic State in Libya.

Both men were charged with one count of planning an act of terror, whilst Rahman was charged with an additional count of assisting Imran.

Arrests took place by the Metropolitan police on November 28.

Both men are due to appear at London’s Old Bailey on 20 December. They have been remanded in custody ahead of their appearance in court.
