Terror suspects ‘planned to bomb Downing Street and murder Theresa May’ – but plot was foiled by police,” by Patrick Lion, Mirror, December 5, 2017

Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman and Mohammed Aqib Imran, who were remanded in custody, will face court tomorrow over the alleged attack

Counter-terror police have foiled an alleged plot to bomb Downing Street and murder PM Theresa May.

Two suspects were arrested during raids in London and Birmingham last week, it emerged tonight.

Scotland Yard said: “Both men were remanded in custody to appear at Westminster magistrates court.”

The pair – Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, of North London, and Mohammed Aqib Imran, from south east Birmingham – were held on November 28.

It came during raids by officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command.

Tonight the London force said Rahman, aged 20, had been charged with preparing acts of terrorism as well as assisting Imran in terror planning.

Rahman was reportedly arrested while allegedly carrying two potential IEDs last week.

He was said to have been allegedly plotting to bomb the security gates at Downing Street with a device hidden in a bag.

The area is heavily populated by police and tourists seeing the sights of Whitehall.
