Man charged over list of Iraq war MPs on blog
A 23-year-old man was today charged with soliciting murder and other offences under the Terrorism Act in relation to a blog listing MPs it claimed voted for the Iraq war, police said.
Bilal Zaheer Ahmad, of Dunstall, Wolverhampton, was arrested last Wednesday in connection with the website which influenced a student who tried to kill MP Stephen Timms.
He will appear at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court in central London this morning.
Ahmad was charged with soliciting murder, West Midlands Police said.
He was also charged with three counts of possessing information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism under the Terrorism Act 2000.
The hit list of MPs who voted for the Iraq war was removed from the extremist website revolutionmuslim.com after the Home Office urged the US to act against it.
The post hailed the student who tried to kill Labour's Stephen Timms as a "heroine".
The site was among those cited as an influence by Roshonara Choudhry, 21, who was jailed for life earlier this month for stabbing East Ham MP Mr Timms twice in the stomach at his surgery.
