Police Charge Man in Terror Incident Near Buckingham Palace

Three police officers sustained minor injuries after he allegedly drove a car at officers outside Buckingham Palace and then reached for a 4ft sword shortly after 8.30pm on Friday

LONDON – Authorities in London have charged a man with terrorism offenses following an incident near Buckingham Palace in which a suspect with a 4-foot sword injured three police officers.

London’s Metropolitan police charged Mohiussunnath Choudhury, 26, of Luton for conduct “in preparation for giving effect to his intention to commit an act or acts of terrorism.”

He will appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court later Thursday. Three London police were slightly injured in the incident last week as they tried to arrest the man.

The police said at the time that the suspect drove up to a police van in a restricted area near the palace. Officers confronted the man, who reached for the sword in his car.

No one other than the suspect and the officers were injured.

Buckingham Palace is the London home of Queen Elizabeth II and one of the city’s main tourist attractions
