United Kingdom authorities think they've arrested two men who plotted to kill Prime Minister Theresa May after "bomb (ing) their way into" her official residence, the Guardian reported. However, it does not appear they were able to obtain or build any explosives. He said that his service had prevented nine terrorist attacks this year.

Officials said it was the 22nd foiled plot since March as hundreds of terrorist suspects remain under investigation. Imran is accused of trying to get a false passport in an effort to go to Libya to join a group linked to the Islamic State.

According to the newspaper, on suspicion of plotting the assassination may during raids in London and Birmingham last week, was arrested two people they were charged under the article on terrorism.

Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, is alleged to have planned to bomb the security gates outside the Westminster residence before attacking Number 10 with a knife and suicide vest in a bid to kill Theresa May.

The Metropolitan Police would only say that Rahman, 20, and Imran, 21, were due to appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday charged with planning terror attacks.

The alleged plot was reportedly revealed by the head of Britain's M15 unit Andrew Parker, while briefing Cabinet ministers.

The court appearance came a day after Home Secretary Amber Rudd told parliament that 22 Islamist terror plots had been thwarted since the killing of a British soldier on a London street by two Islamist extremists in 2013.

"It is in essence an extreme Islamist suicide plot against Downing Street".

"Cabinet ministers heard that while IS suffered major defeats in Iraq and Syria, this did not mean the threat is over". Nobody was injured during that attack.
