Scotland Yard named the men as Brian McHugh, 30, unemployed; Patrick Pearse Joseph Kelly, also 30 and unemployed; James Murphy, 25, a school groundsman; and Michael Phillips, 21, a British Airways apprentice engineer.
The charges came on Saturday, the day after the fifth man held by police, Shane O'Neill, 23 - the brother of suspected terrorist Diarmuid O'Neill, who was shot dead in last Monday's police operation - was freed on police bail. Three of the four men were detained at addresses in Hammersmith and Fulham, west London. Michael Phillips was arrested in a raid on a house in Crawley, West Sussex. The men will appear at the high-security Belmarsh magistrates' court, in south-east London.Reuse content
