Two men arrested last week after police raids in northern England were charged Monday under Britain's Terrorism Act, police said. A statement from London's Metropolitan Police said the men, 29-year-old Rizwan Ditta and 25-year-old Mohammad Dilal, possessed computer files and compact discs containing information useful to a person committing or planning an act of terrorism. Police said the material was found after searches of properties in Halifax, 200 miles (320 kilometers) north of London, and included computer files entitled "Attack Against American Troops," "Hamas Bomb," and "Instructions." One of the compact discs had a clip entitled "al-Qaida," police said in a statement.
