Officials charge 7th man in alleged UK terror plot

British prosecutors say they've authorized police to charge a seventh man over an alleged suicide bombing plot.

The Crown Prosecution Service says that 20-year-old Mujahid Hussain is expected to appear at London's Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday on charges of terrorist fundraising and failure to disclose information about a terrorist act.

Six other men already have been charged after being arrested in the central England city of Birmingham earlier this month in what police described as a major operation.

Four are charged with planning a terror attack, with three among them accused of stating their intention to become suicide bombers.

Security officials have said that the plot was in its early stages and that the targets weren't immediately known.
