Two men from south west London have been charged with offences under the Terrorism Act 2000.

Adam Mohamed, 28, of Chessington, and Imad Shoubaki, 31, of Merton, will appear at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

Scotland Yard said the men were charged with "conspiring to possess money for terrorist purposes".

Mr Mohamed is accused of one other offence and Mr Shoubaki of three other offences, all under the Terrorism Act.

The two men were arrested on 3 October.

Mr Mohamed is accused of having a computer disk with a file containing a book called Zaad e Mujahid "in circumstances which give rise to a reasonable suspicion that your possession thereof is for a purpose connected with the commission, preparation or instigation of an act of terrorism".

Mr Shoubaki is also accused of the same charge and of possessing another computer file entitled "How to become an assassin".

He is also accused of possessing computer files "of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism".

These were the document entitled "How to become an assassin" and a second file detailing how to make explosives.
