    Is it usual for the press to report on other outstanding charges and previous history?

    Suspect Ali Harbi Ali, 25, is charged with murdering Sir David Amess | Daily Mail Online


    The terror suspect accused of stabbing to death Tory MP Sir David Amess in a church plotted to kill a politician for two years before targeting his victim because he voted for air strikes in Syria, a court heard today.

    Ali Harbi Ali, 25, seemed to smile at his legal team as he appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court charged with the murder of Sir David Amess this afternoon.

    He is accused of killing the veteran Conservative MP after queuing with Sir David's Southend West constituents last Friday.

    The court heard today that Ali allegedly settled on a plot to kill an MP two years ago, focusing on two MPs other than Sir David. Detectives monitored his Oyster Card travel within London and CCTV footage and discovered that he had conducted reconnaissance on the other two MPs.

    He was located outside the home of one politician in March, June and July this year, however he was not convinced the address was correct.

    It is understood the plot was inspired by Islamic State and it is alleged he previously focused on two other politicians.

    He is said to have carried out reconnaissance at one of their homes, the surgery of another and the Houses of Parliament.

    The defendant was not asked to enter pleas to the two charges and was remanded in custody.

    Prosecutor James Cable told the court Mr Ali had made a midday appointment to see Sir David at his surgery at Belfairs Methodist Church in Leigh-on-Sea.

    This thread still hasn't been moved to terrorist attacks.... where it should be.

    The devil is in those chilling details. Using an Oyster card to go murder the same politicians who decided about that system. All while studying medicine, to save lives of course.
    The names of the other targets may well be out in the open soon. I wish them strength.

    Increase in UK's terrorism threat level to 'severe'


    The UK’s terrorism threat level has been raised after two attacks in the space of a month.

    It is now listed as “severe”, which means an attack is “highly likely”.

    The threat level had been lowered to “substantial” in February, meaning an attack is “likely”, after being raised to severe in November last year.

    The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre and MI5 are responsible for setting the international and domestic threat levels respectively, taking into account available intelligence, terrorist intentions and capability as well as potential timescales for attacks.

    Speaking to broadcasters, Home Secretary Priti Patel said: “The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre, Jtac, are now increasing the United Kingdom’s threat level from substantial to severe.

    “And there’s a reason for that, and that reason is because what we saw yesterday is the second incident in a month.”


    The car explosion outside a Liverpool hospital on Remembrance Sunday has been declared a terrorist attack by police.


    It comes after Conservative MP for Southend West Sir David Amess died during a constituency surgery in Leigh-on-Sea in Essex on October 15.


    Alleged terrorist Ali Harbi Ali, 25, is accused of murdering the MP and has also been charged with preparing acts of terrorism between May 1 2019 and September 28 this year.

    About time to finally move this thread to to 'rampage killings and terrorist attacks'...... what is holding you back?

    Funeral and horse-drawn hearse procession to be held for David Amess | Daily Mail Online


    Mourners will pay their respects to Sir David Amess at a funeral service and horse-drawn procession in his Southend West constituency today - as Boris Johnson said the 'murdered' MP will be 'much missed'.

    Father-of-five Sir David, who was a devout Catholic, was stabbed to death while holding a constituency surgery at Belfairs Methodist Church in Leigh-on-Sea on October 15.

    His friend and colleague Mark Francois is to deliver a eulogy at Monday's private ecumenical service at St Mary's Church in Prittlewell, and a horse-drawn hearse will carry the casket on a procession through Southend following the 1pm service.

    It is due to pause outside Southend's Civic Centre and again outside Sir David's constituency office, Iveagh Hall, before returning to the chapel of rest.

    Paying tribute to Sir David, Boris Johnson said the event would help mourners reflect on his 'amazing contribution' to his constituents.

    The Prime Minister added: 'He was a guy who campaigned about things he really cared for... He showed what you can achieve as an MP to change lives of people up and down the country and he will be much, much missed.'

    Monday's funeral service, led by Reverend Paul Mackay and Rev Monsignor Kevin William Hale, is strictly by invitation only.

    Funeral and horse-drawn hearse procession to be held for David Amess | Daily Mail Online

    The funeral for Sir David Amess is underway at a church in his beloved Southend today - as Boris Johnson marked the moment by recalling how ministers 'broke down' when he told them of their colleague's death.

    Sir David's coffin, draped in a Union flag, was brought to the entrance of St Mary's Church in Prittlewell - a site of worship for more than a thousands years - in a hearse driven at walking pace.

    Members of the public who lined the streets outside the church broke into spontaneous applause as the pallbearers made their way along the churchyard on a bright, crisp autumn afternoon.

    Pall bearers from Southend Fire Service carried the coffin the short distance to the church porch as they were saluted by members of 3rd Chalkwell Sea Scouts.

    Friend and colleague Mark Francois delivered the eulogy, which praised Sir David for being 'the ultimate constituency MP'.

    Today, the father of five's 'absolutely broken' family called on Britons to 'set aside their differences and show kindness to all'.
