A delivery driver appeared in court yesterday charged with planning to kill American airmen at British bases in a Lee Rigby-style terror attack.
Junead Khan, 24, allegedly planned to run over US personnel in his car before killing them with a knife or blowing himself up.
Khan is also accused of planning to travel to Syria to join Islamic State with his uncle Shazib Khan, 22.
The pair, from Luton, were arrested last week and appeared in the dock at Westminster magistrates’ court yesterday.
Junead Khan is charged with two counts of preparing acts of terrorism and his uncle is charged with one count of the same offence.
He had worked as a delivery driver since May for TRG Logistics, which works with medical supplies group Alliance Healthcare.
He is accused of checking out the RAF bases at Mildenhall and Lakenheath in Suffolk and Feltwell in Norfolk in the weeks before his arrest.
‘From messaging recovered from his phone it seemed the attack was to take the form of a staged road traffic accident,’ prosecutors allege.
‘It would force American occupants out of their vehicle where they were to be subjected to an attack, in a similar vein to that perpetrated on Lee Rigby which resulted in his death.
‘The attack was possibly to include or to be supported by the deployment of an improvised explosive device that could be detonated as a suicide bomb.’
After counter-terrorism police arrested Junead at the Letchworth depot of Alliance Healthcare they allegedly found a copy of a document titled a ‘brief guide to the Islamic State’.
