3 Muslims plead not guilty in plot to behead British citizens, court hears

Three Islamic State supporters arrested days before Remembrance Sunday last year plotted to knife a member of the British public, a court has heard.

They were acting on a “truly chilling” fatwa, or religious edict, issued by Isis to rig the roads with explosives and to cut off the heads of members of the public, police officers or security services, said the prosecution.
