The bombers who carried out the Manchester Arena and Parsons Green terror attacks have been charged with assaulting a prison officer.

Hashem Abedi, 23, and Ahmed Hassan, 21, are accused of carrying out the assault at high security HMP Belmarsh in south east London.

They have been charged with actual bodily harm , along with a third man, Muhammed Saeed, 22.

Abedi was also charged with assaulting a second prison officer.

The Metropolitan Police said the charges relate to an incident at the jail on May 11 last year.

Abedi, Hassan and Saeed were all charged on Tuesday.

They are due to appear at Bromley Magistrates’ Court, in south east London, on April 7.

Abedi, the brother of suicide bomber Salman Abedi, was jailed last August for murdering 22 victims at the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing attack.

He was found guilty by a jury of 22 counts of murder, attempted murder and plotting to cause an explosion likely to endanger life.

The attack took place as crowds left an Ariana Grande pop concert on May 22 2017.
