Days after UK protested on Donald Trump re-tweeting anti-Muslim videos,
UK authorities believed that they have arrested two men who plotted to kill Prime Minister Theresa May after “bomb(ing) their way into” her official residence.
The United Kingdom had distanced from US President Donald Trump for his anti-Muslim propaganda saying he was “wrong” to share the videos posted by Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of Britain first, a far- right and ultra- nationalist political group.
According to the Guardian report, the men were taken into custody last week, but news of the arrests came when an official report was released.
Sky News quoted its correspondent as saying there was an “extreme Islamist suicide plot against Downing Street (a reference to the UK Prime Minister’s residence).”
The Sky News report said the two men, 20-year-old Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman and 21-year-old Mohammed Aqib Imran, will appear in court “on terror charges” on Wednesday.
The MI5, Britain’s domestic counter-intelligence agency, said nine terrorist plots had been thwarted in the last 12 months. Britain has witnessed several terror attacks on its soil this year, including, Ariana Grande concert in Manchester and in London’s Westminster and London bridges.
