Hate preacher Abu Izzadeen has been charged with inciting terrorism overseas and fundraising.
The fanatic — who famously heckled Home Secretary John Reid — is accused of encouraging the murder of British troops and raising funds for Iraqi insurgents.
Also charged with terror fundraising are: Shal Jalal Hussain, 24, of Whitechapel, East London; Omar Zaheer, 27, of Southall, West London; Simon Keeler, 35, of Whitechapel; Ibrahim Abdullah Hassan of Leyton; and Rajib Khan, 28, of Luton. Keeler, Hassan and Khan are charged with inciting terror overseas. Hassan, 21, is charged with having terror-related articles.
The six were allegedly caught on tape by a Met Police unit set up to nail preachers of hate.
They appear before Westminster JPs today.
