British security services said they have foiled an alleged plot to assassinate the Prime Minister in by terrorists who would first bomb their way into Downing Street and then kill the prime minister.
Two men were arrested last week following a joint operation by MI5, the UK’s counter-terrorism security service, and police.
Security officials believe the alleged plot by Takfiri extremists is the ninth to have been thwarted since March this year.
The attack on Westminster in March heralded the start of a spate of attacks, with five terrorist atrocities getting through Britain’s defenses this year and claiming a total of 36 lives in London and Manchester.
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.
Two men were detained on 28 November following an operation involving MI5 investigators and counter-terrorism police officers from Scotland Yard and the West Midlands. They are aged 20 and 21 and will make their first appearance on Wednesday at Westminster magistrates court in central London.
