LONDON (AP) — Six men have been charged with involvement in a terror bomb plot, police announced on Sunday.

The arrests of the six Birmingham area men were part of a "major operation" by the West Midlands counterterrorism unit, the West Midlands police department said.

Four men have been charged with preparing for an act of terrorism, and two more with failing to disclose information, the police said. One of those two was also charged with terrorist fundraising.

All six, who are aged between 25 and 32, will appear at West London Magistrates Court on Monday.
