A mother and daughter have appeared in court along with another woman accused of Britain’s first all-female terrorist plot.
Rizlaine Boular, 21, her mother, Mina Dich, 43, and Khawla Barghouthi, 20, are accused of plotting a random knife attack on a stranger or strangers.
The women appeared Thursday morning, May 11, at Westminster magistrates’ court accused of planning an attack near parliament.
Ms Boular and Ms Dich wore burkas and lifted their veils to show their eyes when requested to do so by Judge Emma Arbuthnot. Ms Barghouthi wore a hijab.
The women were arrested when officers raided Ms Barghouthi’s home on April 27. She was arrested and Ms Boular was shot by the heavily armed police. It is understood she was shot four times and still has two bullets in her abdomen that doctors have been unable to remove.
