According to report from The Sun, three women accused of forming the UK’s first all-female terror squad to carry out a knife rampage appeared in court today.
Mina Dich, 43, her daughter Rizlaine Boular, 21, and pal Khawla Barghouthi, 20, plotted “to murder a person or persons unknown” in Westminster in April this year, it is alleged.
Boular was shot four times when armed police stormed Barghouthi’s home in Willesden, North West London, on April 27.
She had emergency surgery and was arrested on discharge from hospital.
Her mother Dich was detained in a separate raid in Kent.
Today all three women appeared at the Old Bailey via video link from HMP Bronzefield.
They are each charged with one count of engaging in the preparation of a terrorist act and one count of conspiracy to murder between April 11 and 28.
A court has previously heard claims the three woman planned to butcher bystanders in a plot they dubbed the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
At today’s hearing Boular and Dich were wearing traditional Muslim face veils covering their entire faces. They raised their hands to identify themselves.
Barghouthi wore a hijab that did not cover her face.
Mr Justice Holroyde set a plea and trial preparation hearing for October 23.
The three defendants are set to stand trial at the Old Bailey on November 27.
Boular, of Clerkenwell, Dich, of Vauxhall, and Barghouthi were remanded in custody ahead of their trial scheduled to begin on 27 November.
