A teenager has appeared in court accused of planning to carry out a mass-casualty terror attack at London landmarks including Buckingham Palace.

Haroon Ali-Syed, 19, from Hounslow in west London, was arrested last week on suspicion of a terror offence.

It is alleged that between April 2016 and September 2016, Ali-Syed attempted to obtain weapons online, including an explosive device, with a view to launching an assault on a busy area of the capital.

It is believed that Oxford Street and military bases were also among the targets the defendant had allegedly considered as a location for the attack.

Ali-Syed was charged with the intention of committing acts of terrorism engaged in conduct in preparation for giving effect to that intention.

During an 11-minute hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday afternoon, Ali-Syed, dressed in grey, spoke only to confirm his name, age and address.

District Judge Elizabeth Roscoe told the defendant he was to be remanded in custody until a hearing on September 19 at the Old Bailey.

Two other men arrested at the same time have been released on police bail pending further investigation.

  1. Having a Muslim mayor of London was a bad choice, this simply encourages Muslims to behave more aggressively. What is worse Khan has instituted removing all security cameras in London because they are too expensive to maintain. Has there been anymore progress I have not heard about – i.e. introducing thought police in London? And what does Khan mean by thought police?

  2. He’ll be sentenced to 3 months. The other paedophile nutcase only got a few years and he is higher up the food chain.

    Should be sentenced to living on a pig farm and mucking out their pen for the rest of his life.
