LONDON (AP) — Two 25-year-old British men have appeared in a London court charged with terrorist offenses.

The pair — one of Turkish descent and one with an Algerian background — were arrested Oct. 13 in a London street in an operation that saw armed officers shoot out the tires of their car.

Both are charged with possession of a computer file including information on bomb making, and one is also charged with preparing a terrorist act.

Unusually, a judge made an order barring reporting of their names to protect the security of an ongoing investigation.

On Monday they were ordered detained until their next court appearance on Nov. 18.

Two other men arrested in the same swoop have been released without charge.
