LONDON — A 24-year-old man was accused by British authorities Tuesday of planning a terrorist attack targeting American military personnel in the U.K.

Junead Ahmed Khan is also charged in connection with planning to travel to Syria to join ISIS along with his 22-year-old uncle Shazib Ahmed Khan, the Crown Prosecution Service said in a statement. Both men live in Luton, north of London.

The allegations facing Junead Ahmed Khan of planning an attack relate to the period between May 10 and July 14, officials said.

The travel-related charges refer to August 1, 2014, to May 10, 2015, according to the statement.

The two men appeared briefly at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Tuesday and were remanded into custody to appear at the Old Bailey on August 10.

The two men were arrested at two residential addresses on July 14, along with a man in his 30s who was released without charge Monday evening, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

"The arrests and searches were part of an ongoing investigation into Islamist-related terrorism," the Met said.
