LONDON â Police here charged a man with terrorism offenses Thursday, after three police officers were injured by an attacker armed with a 4-foot sword near Buckingham Palace.
Mohiussunnath Choudhury, 26, from Luton, a town near London, was charged with engaging in the preparation to commit an act or acts of terrorism on Aug. 25, London Metropolitan Police said.
Police said theÂ officers suffered minor injuries when they confronted a man who drove up to a police van in a restricted area on Constitution Hill, a road near the central London home of Queen Elizabeth II.
“As they challenged the driver, who was the only occupant in the car, he reached for what we now know to be a 4-foot sword which was in the front passenger foot well,” police said in a Â statement.
“The officers acted very quickly to detain him…The man, who repeatedly shouted Allahu Akbar, was incapacitated with CS spray,” the statement said, referring to the Arabic phrase forÂ âGod is great.
Choudhury was due to appear in a court Â in central London on Thursday.
