Radical Islam poses a significant threat to the entire world despite the fact that ISIS is on the run and President Trump has destroyed their capital in Raqqa. It only takes one or two terrorists to cause intense damage anywhere at any time.
Tuesday, we learned that a significant attack had been stopped.
Apparently, the English Prime Minister was the target.
Here’s the latest.
From Sky News:
A terror plot to assassinate Prime Minister Theresa May has been foiled, Sky sources have confirmed.
Sky’s Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt said: “It’s the latest in a number of terror plots that police and MI5 believe they’ve foiled this year.
“I understand that the head of MI5, Andrew Parker, briefed Cabinet ministers today, such is the seriousness of what they believed they have uncovered.
“It is in essence an extreme Islamist suicide plot against Downing Street. Essentially police believe that the plan was to launch some sort of improvised explosive device at Downing Street and in the ensuing chaos attack and kill Theresa May, the Prime Minister.
From The Hill:
Two men were allegedly plotting to use a bomb disguised as a bag to blow off the gates of Downing Street and then attack May with knives, The Independent reported.
Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, from north London, and Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21, from Birmingham, have been charged with preparing a terrorist act. They are due in court on Wednesday.
MI5 head Andrew Parker revealed information about the plot to the British cabinet, The Independent and Sky News reported.
Just another reminder that we always have to stay vigilant.
From Fox News:
The plan was “in essence an extreme Islamist suicide plot against Downing Street” by two men who have now been arrested, Sky News reported.
10 Downing Street is the location of the prime minister’s office.
Police believe “the plan was to launch some sort of improvised explosive device at Downing Street and in the ensuing chaos attack and kill Theresa May,” according to the report.
