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.

Muslim convert Izzadeen, 32, was one of six men arrested in dawn swoops last week.

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.
