A 26-year-old has been charged with a terror offence after three officers were injured in an alleged attack by a man armed with a 4ft sword outside Buckingham Palace, the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has confirmed. Mohiussunnath Choudhury, from Luton, has been charged with engaging in the preparation to commit an act or acts of terrorism on London`s Constitution Hill on August 25. The officers suffered minor injuries after he allegedly drove a car at them and then reached for a sword inside his vehicle. Uber driver Mr Choudury appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (August 31) only to confirm his name, address and date of birth. He was remanded in custody to appear at the Old bailey on September 21. Mr Choudhury allegedly aimed a blue Toyota Prius at a marked police vehicle, and repeatedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” before he was incapacitated with CS spray. The MPS said they believe he was acting alone. On Wednesday (August 30), the force said a 30-year-old man held in west London on Sunday (August 27), who was questioned by counter-terrorism officers investigating the incident, will face no further action. It is understood that no members of the Royal Family were in Buckingham Palace when the attack happened in the restricted area in Constitution Hill.
