On Tuesday, two British Muslims were charged with plotting an attack against US military personnel in the UK. Junead Ahmed Khan and Shazib Ahmed Khan appear to have planned an attack for sometime between May 10 and July 14, which thankfully never occurred. They also had plans to go to Syria and join ISIS.
Sky News reported that the men were arrested a week ago in a joint operation between Bedfordshire Police and the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorist Command Unit and that armed police were involved in one of the arrests. Police say searches were carried out at two addresses in the Luton area as part of the operation which forms part of an ongoing investigation into Islamist-related terrorism.
