A mother and daughter accused of forming the first all-female Islamist hit squad to carry out a Westminster knife rampage have appeared in court.
Mina Dich, 43, her daughter Rizlaine Boular, 21, plotted ‘to murder a person or persons unknown’, it is claimed.
The two women and a third, Khawla Barghouthi, 20, are each charged with one count of engaging in the preparation of a terrorist act and one count of conspiracy to murder between 11 and 28 April.
