A plot to assassinate Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May has been foiled, Sky News reported on Tuesday, citing sources.

Police believe that the plan was to launch some sort of improvised explosive device at the Prime Minister’s residence at Downing Street and in the ensuing chaos to attack and kill Theresa May, Sky News reported.

The Metropolitan Police said on Tuesday that two men arrested last week had been charged with terrorism offenses and would appear in Westminster Magistrates´ Court on Wednesday.

The Metropolitan Police said in a statement that the men were arrested by its Counter Terrorism Command on Nov. 28.

It identified them as Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, of north London, and Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21, of south-east Birmingham.

Earlier on Tuesday, May’s spokesman said Britain had thwarted nine plots in the last 12 months.
