3 men in UK court over beheading plot

The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) Three men have appeared in a British court accused of planning terrorism acts that reportedly included a beheading plot.

The men, aged 19 to 27, were remanded in custody after a brief hearing at London's Westminster Magistrates' Court.

British media, including the BBC, reported Thursday that the men had allegedly planned to behead a member of the public in Britain. No details were immediately available.

The men Nadir Ali Sayed, Yousaf Shah Syed and Haseeb Hamayoon were arrested on Nov. 6, three days ahead of Remembrance Sunday, an important annual national tribute to Britain's war dead.

Police said they were arrested as part on ongoing probes into "Islamist-related terrorism."

The men did not apply for bail, and they are due to appear in court again on Dec. 4.
