Six in court over soldier protest

Six men have appeared in court in connection with a disturbance at a soldiers' homecoming parade in Luton.

The incident took place during the parade for the 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment on 10 March.

The six appeared at Luton Magistrates' Court and denied using threatening or abusive words or behaviour.

All the men were released on bail to appear in court in January. A seventh man who was unable to attend court faces the same charge.

Jalal Ahmed, 21, Yousaf Bashir, 29, Jubair Ahmed, 19, Ziaur Rahman, 32, Shajjadar Choudhury, 31, and Munim Abdul, 28, all from addresses in Luton, will reappear for trial at Luton Magistrates' Court on 4 January.
