Two men have been charged with terror offences as part of an ongoing investigation in London.

Ahmed Aweys, 32, of Redbridge, has been charged with three offences of dissemination of terrorist publications, while Abdulaziz Omer Munye, 26, of north London, has been charged with one offence under section 2 of the Terrorism Act 2006.

Both men are due to appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday.

The charges come after four people were arrested as part of an ongoing operation by the Met's Counter Terrorism Command.

A 30-year-old woman detained on suspicion of terrorism offences on Thursday morning remains in police custody, Scotland Yard said.

A 29-year-old man from east London, who was arrested on April 18, remains on police bail.
