An Uber driver accused of attacking police officers with a samurai sword outside Buckingham Palace as part of an alleged terror plot will go on trial.

Terror suspect Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 26, is accused of driving a blue Toyota Prius at a marked police van on Constitution Hill on the evening of August 25 last year.

It is alleged that he then reached for a four foot long samurai sword he had stored in the well of the car, but was sprayed with CS gas and arrested as he shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’.
