Five people have been arrested and charged with alleged terrorism offences and conspiracy to murder.

Four men, aged 26, 30, 34 and 39, and a woman aged 27 were arrested at several locations in Scotland last Wednesday.

The operation was led by Police Scotland. It also involved the Police Service of Northern Ireland and the security service.

All five have been charged under section five of the Terrorism Act, and conspiracy to murder.

Section five of the Act covers the preparation of terrorist acts.

After the operation last week, Police Scotland said it had focused on the "activities of individuals sympathetic to dissident Republicanism but who are not affiliated to any specific group".

The detained people had been held at the Scottish Terrorist Detention Centre in the Govan area of Glasgow.

On Friday, two days after the arrests, police were granted an extended detention period under the Terrorism Act.

The four men and one woman have now been charged and are due to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Tuesday.
