Man charged in United Kingdom after sword incident near Buckingham Palace

UK sword-wielding terror suspect tried to find Windsor Castle but got to pub of same name

A MAN has been charged with a terror offence after he was arrested near Buckingham Palace armed with a 4ft sword, Scotland Yard said.

The suspect was arrested after a vehicle rammed into a marked police auto in Constitution Hill, close to the royal residence at around 8.30pm.

It has been reported that he shouted "Allahu Akbar" at officers.

The 26-year-old will appear in Westminster Magistrates' Court later on Thursday.

Mohiussunnath Choudhury, 26, "deliberately" drove a auto at police outside the royal palace before reaching for the 4ft weapon when approached by unarmed officers on the evening of Friday, August 25th.

Police named the man as Mohiussunnath Choudhury, from Luton in Bedfordshire, a county north of London.

The officers used tear gas to incapacitate the man and arrested him at the scene.

She said: "I want to thank the officers who acted quickly and bravely to protect the public demonstrating the dedication and professionalism of our police".

A spokesman said he was charged by detectives from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command over the incident last Friday.

"While we can not speculate on what the man was intending to do - this will be determined during the course of the investigation - it is only right that we investigate this as a terrorist incident at this time".
