Six charged with inciting terrorism in UK
Six radical Muslims, including Abu Izzadeen who barracked Home Secretary John Reid last September, were charged in Britain with inciting terrorism overseas and fundraising, police said on Monday.
Four of the six, including Izzadeen, were also charged with inciting terrorism overseas. They will appear in custody at City of Westminster Magistrates Court in London.
The six men were arrested this week in connection with allegedly inflammatory statements made at London's Regent's Park Mosque in November 2004.
Izzadeen, along with Shal Jalal Hussain, 24, of east London, Omar Zaheer, 27, of Southall, Simon Keeler, 35, of east London, Ibrahim Abdullah Hassan, 21, of east London and Rajib Khan, 28, of Luton, are all charged with terrorist fundraising.
Izzadeen, Keeler, Hassan and Khan have also been charged with inciting others to commit acts of terrorism overseas.
In addition Hassan is charged with possession of articles suspected to be connected with the commission, preparation or instigation of a terrorist act.
Izzadeen, a former electrician who lives in Leytonstone, east London, with his wife and three children, is best known for his barracking of Home Secretary John Reid last September.
A well known figure towards the extreme end of British Muslim opinion, convert Izzadeen repeatedly disrupted a speech by Reid in east London calling him "an enemy of Islam" and "a tyrant".
