A man has been detained over an alleged plot to bomb Downing Street and kill Theresa May.

Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, has been remanded in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court over the reported plan for a knife and bomb attack at the Prime Minister’s home.

Rahman has been charged with preparing acts of terrorism and appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court on Wednesday, alongside Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21, who is accused of trying to join Isis.

The alleged plan is said to have involved detonating a suicide bomb vest at the security gates outside the Westminster residence before stabbing May.

They were arrested after raids by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command in London and Birmingham on November 28.

 

Rahman, who gave his nationality as Bangladeshi-British, appeared in court wearing a grey tracksuit with long hair, and was represented by Ali Bajwa QC.

Details of the plot were reportedly given to the Cabinet on Tuesday by Andrew Parker, the head of MI5, in a briefing in which he revealed that a total of nine Islamist terror plots had been thwarted over the past year.

The PM’s official spokesman declined to discuss the details of the attacks, but several newspapers later reported that the two men arrested in London and Birmingham last week had been behind the plot.

 

The Met Police would only confirm that Rahman and Imran were due to appear in court today, charged with planning terror attacks.

Rahman, from Finchley in north London, is charged with preparing acts of terrorism and assisting Imran in terror planning.

Imran, from the Sparkbrook area of Birmingham, is charged with preparing acts of terrorism.

Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot remanded them in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on December 20.
