  • Two men accused of plotting to kill British Prime Minister Theresa May appeared in a London court Wednesday.
  • [00:10.08]
  • The two are believed to have been planning a suicide attack using explosives and a knife at the home of the prime minister on 10 Downing Street.
  • [00:22.61]
  • Information about the suspected plot was first released by Andrew Parker, the head of Britain’s domestic intelligence service, MI5.
  • [00:36.78]
  • Parker spoke to members of Theresa May’s cabinet about terrorist threats.
  • [00:44.33]
  • He said that his service had prevented nine terrorist attacks this year.
  • [00:51.87]
  • Police say the men who appeared in court Wednesday were arrested last week in raids that took place in London and the city of Birmingham.
  • [01:04.75]
  • One of those arrested is 20-year-old Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman.
  • [01:13.79]
  • He is accused of preparing acts of terrorism.
  • [01:18.52]
  • Officials suspect that Rahman had two explosive devices when he was arrested.
  • [01:27.35]
  • Also accused is 21-year-old Mohammed Aqib Imran, who was arrested in Birmingham.
  • [01:35.71]
  • Imran is accused of trying to get a false passport in an effort to go to Libya to join a group linked to the Islamic State.
  • [01:47.93]
  • When speaking to cabinet members, Parker noted that the Islamic State group had faced defeats.
  • [01:56.99]
  • But, he said, the group was still “trying to encourage attacks in the UK and elsewhere via propaganda on social media.”
  • [02:09.66]
  • News of the plot comes hours after the release of an official report on the bombing attack in Manchester last year.
  • [02:20.40]
  • The report said British security forces had missed chances to stop the attack.
  • [02:28.71]
  • Lawyer David Anderson wrote the report.
  • [02:34.36]
  • Anderson said the Manchester bombing attack, which killed 22 people at a music concert in May, could have been stopped “had the cards fallen differently.”
  • [02:48.66]
  • In addition, the report said the leader of another terror attack, who used knives on London Bridge in June, had been under investigation by MI5.
  • [03:04.47]
  • However, Anderson noted that most terror plots continue to be prevented before they can be carried out.
