Four charged with terror-related offences
LONDON (Reuters) - Police charged four men with terrorism-related offences on Sunday after an operation by counter-terrorism officers in northwest England earlier this month.
Israr Hussain Malik was charged with intending to commit acts of terrorism. Three others -- Munir Ahmed Farooqi, Haris Farooqi, and Matthew Newton -- were charged with intending to help others commit acts of terrorism.
All four were to appear at City of Westminster Magistrates Court in London on Monday, a police statement said. The charges follow a counter-terrorism operation on November 16.
A 62-year-old man was released without charge, police added.
