First 'all-female terrorist gang' appeared in UK

Britain's first all-female terror cell suspects have appeared at the Old Bailey. All three women appeared by video link from HMP Bronzefield, Surrey, and two hid their faces behind Muslim veils.

Mina Dich, 43, her daughter Rizlaine Boular, 21, and Khawla Barghouthi, 20, are accused of plotting to carry out a knife attack in London's Westminster.

Boular was shot four times in the stomach as armed police raided a house in Willesden, north London, in April.
Barghouthi was arrested at the house and Dich was seized in a raid in Kent.

All three appeared at the Old Bailey via video link from HMP Bronzefield, Surrey. They are each charged with one count of engaging in the preparation of a terrorist act and one count of conspiracy to murder. Dich and Boular were wearing traditional Muslim face veils and raised their hands to identify themselves.
