Alleged egg attackers charged

By Jennifer Lipman, February 20, 2012

Four men have been charged following a spate of alleged "drive-by" egg-throwing attacks which targeted Jews.

The charges follow the incidents in December last year in Hendon and Golders Green, north west London, when eggs were allegedly thrown from passing vehicles at religious Jews walking in the areas.

Mohammed Khalfia and Mohammed Jawad, both of Wembley, Haider Al-Fardan, of Kingsbury, and Aimen Mohamed, of Colindale, will appear at Hendon Magistrates' Court on Friday.

Each faces three racially-aggravated public order charges including using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.
