Two charged with terrorism offences in London – The Guardian



Two men have been charged with terrorism offences as part of an ongoing investigation in London.

Ahmed Aweys, 32, of Redbridge, east London, was charged on Thursday with three offences of dissemination of terrorist publications. Abdulaziz Omer Munye, 26, of north London, was charged with one offence under section 2 of the Terrorism Act 2006.

Both men are due to appear in custody at Westminster magistrates court on Friday, the Metropolitan police said.

The charges came after four people were arrested as part of an operation by the Met’s counter-terrorism command.

A 30-year-old woman detained on suspicion of terrorism offences on Thursday morning remained in police custody, Scotland Yard said.

A 29-year-old man from east London, who was arrested on 18 April on suspicion of terrorism offences, remains on police bail and has been told to return to a south London police station in mid-August.
