Plot to kill UK PM Theresa May foiled

Plot to kill UK PM Theresa May foiled

Sky News added that this was something that has been pursued over several weeks at least by Scotland Yard, MI5 and West Midlands Police.

The alleged details of the latest plot emerged as an official report into the terrorist attacks Britain suffered between March and June was released, showing that MI5 had intelligence that could have stopped the Manchester terror attack in May but, with the benefit of hindsight, did not correctly interpret it.

It identified them as Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, of north London, and Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21, of south-east Birmingham.

The two men were arrested on terrorism charges for allegedly planning to assassinate British Prime Minister Theresa May.

The disclosure came just hours after the United Kingdom government revealed that a terrorist attack on a Manchester concert venue that left 22 people dead could have been averted if security officials had responded differently to intelligence about the suicide bomber in the months before the attack.

The review by lawyer David Anderson, ordered by Home Secretary Amber Rudd, said the May 22 attack that killed 22 people might have been thwarted "had the cards fallen differently". His case was due to be considered at a meeting scheduled for nine days after his May 2016 attack at the Manchester Arena. It is not clear how Imran and Rahman planned to get through the fortified gates and armed police officers guarding Downing Street.

In 1991 the IRA launched a home-made mortar bomb attack on Number 10. Analysts say the chances of the men gaining entrance to the prime minister's residence would have been remote. The mortars fell in the garden, but the explosions prompted officials and ministers to dive for cover.
