LONDON (AP) — Six men have appeared in a London court on terrorism charges -- three of them charged with plotting suicide bomb attacks in Britain.
The men were arrested in the central England city of Birmingham last week as part of what was called a "major operation" by counterterrorism police. They were charged late yesterday.
Four are accused of planning a terrorist act. Three of them are accused of planning a bombing campaign, making explosives and stating an intention to become suicide bombers.
Two are also accused of traveling to Pakistan for terrorism training.
All six appeared at West London Magistrates Court and were remanded in custody until October.
