LONDON (Reuters) - British police said on Thursday they had charged under terrorism laws a man who was carrying a four-foot sword outside Buckingham Palace last week.

The Metropolitan police charged the 26 year-old Mohiussunnath Choudhury under the Terrorism Act of 2006 "for engaging in conduct in preparation for giving effect to his intention to commit an act or acts of terrorism."
