A British man was charged Tuesday for allegedly planning a terrorist attack against the U.S. Military in the U.K. according to a statement released by Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service.

Junead Kkan, 24, from Luton, U.K., was arrested July 14 under the Terrorism Act for being involved in a plot to carry out a terrorist attack. His uncle, Shazib Khan, 22, was also arrested. Both are accused of plotting to join ISIS in Syria. (RELATED: ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror)

“We have concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to charge Junead Khan and Shazib Khan with the intention of committing acts of terrorism,” Deborah Walsh, deputy head of counter terrorism at the Crown Prosecution Service, said in the statement.

“Criminal proceedings have now commenced and both men have a right to a fair trial,” Walsh said.

They will be appearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London Tuesday.

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