British police on Thursday charged a 22-year-old woman with a series of offenses after they said they found terrorist handbooks and weapons manuals on a computer hard drive. London's Metropolitan Police said "The al-Qaida Manual," "The Terrorists Handbook," and "The Mujahideen Poisons Handbook," as well as manuals for rifles, pistols, and rocket-propelled grenades were found on the computer, which was seized late last month. They said other files on the computer included an operator's manual for pistols, a document on mines, and another document entitled "How to Win Hand-to-Hand Fighting." Samina Malik, who police said is unemployed and lives in south London, was charged Thursday afternoon with four offenses under the Terrorism Act 2000, including possessing information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism. She was arrested in connection with an investigation that has already seen one other person charged, police said.
