Two men are to appear in a London court Wednesday for charges of plotting to kill British Prime Minister Theresa May, media reports said early Wednesday. London's Metropolitan Police confirmed the arrest of the two men in an official statement without mentioning the intended victim of the plot foiled by anti-terrorism police.
Police have named the two men as Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, from north London and Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21, from southeastern Birmingham. The two men have been arrested on suspicion of plotting to kill the prime minister by using a bomb disguised as a bag to blow off the gates of Downing Street and then attack her with knives, the reports said.
Sky News and the Daily Telegraph are among the media outlets which reported that. Both men are in police custody and will appear before Westminster Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
