Leading British news outlet Sky News claimed Tuesday that the Metropolitan police has foiled a plot to murder Prime Minister Theresa May.
Sky News in its report claimed that the police arrested two native Muslims accused of plotting against PM May.
The report said police believed there was a plan to launch an improvised explosive device at Downing Street and, in the chaos that ensued, attack and kill May.
The Metropolitan police had arrested Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, of north London, and Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21, of south-east Birmingham on November 28.
According to police, both accused have been charged with terrorism offences and would appear in Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.
May came into power following the resignation of former prime minister David Cameron, who left the seat after the outcome of the European Union membership referendum in which 52% of voters voted in favour of leaving the EU.
Earlier on Tuesday, May’s spokesperson said Britain had thwarted nine plots in the last 12 months.
