British police say they have charged three men in connection with a fire-bomb attack on the London office of the publisher of a book about the Prophet Muhammad and his bride.
British police say 40-year-old Ali Behesti, 22-year-old Abrar Mirza, and 30-year-old Abbas Taj are charged with plotting to endanger life and damage property.
Police said Thursday that Beheshti was also charged with possessing a weapon "designed or adapted for the discharge of a noxious liquid or gas."
The fire targeted publisher Gibson Square, which planned to publish Sherry Jones' "The Jewel of Medina." Publication of the book in Britain remains in doubt. In August, US publisher Random House said it was dropping the novel because of the threat of violence.
