  • Theresa May meets Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy at 10 Downing Street London

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.

Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, has been remanded in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

THE two men whose plan to kill the United Kingdom prime minister was thwarted last week by law enforcers have been charged with terrorism and will appear in court today, say news reports.

The MI5, Britain's domestic counter-intelligence agency, said nine terrorist plots had been thwarted in the last 12 months, according to two news reports.

The smashed plot highlights the extreme threat still faced by the United Kingdom in a year blighted by terrorist atrocities which claimed 36 lives. When asked about his nationality in court, Imran said he was Bangladeshi British.

"The secondary attack on No. 10 was to be carried out with a suicide vest, pepper spray and a knife", the document said. His alleged accomplice, Mohammed Aqib Imran, who is accused of trying to join the Islamic State group but was not charged in the assassination plot, also pled not guilty, according to the Sun in London. The recording would have given Imran greater credibility with the terrorist organization, the document said.
