“All three men appeared in grey tracksuits in the dock – they only answered their names and confirmed addresses”, reports Daniel Sandford outside court
Three terrorism suspects were involved in a plot to behead a member of the British public “imminently” when they were arrested, a court has heard.
Nadir Ali Sayed, Yousaf Shah Syed and Haseeb Hamayoon were arrested three days before Remembrance Sunday.
During a preliminary hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, none of them applied for bail and they were remanded in custody.
Full details of the alleged plot were not given.
Rebecca Mundy, prosecuting, said the charges related to an alleged plan to carry out a beheading.
Mr Sayed, 21, from Hounslow, Mr Syed, 19, from High Wycombe, and Mr Hamayoon, 27, from Hayes, were arrested on 6 November in London and High Wycombe.
A fourth man, arrested in Uxbridge, west London, was released on Saturday with no further action against him.
