Four men charged after convoy filmed yelling anti-Semitic abuse in London

The alleged incident took place during a pro-Palestine demonstration amid the latest conflict with Israel

Four men have been charged after allegedly shouting anti-Semitic abuse from a car in London this summer.

The quartet, all from Blackburn, Lancashire, are accused of making the remarks while in a convoy of vehicles, during a pro-Palestine demonstration held amid the latest conflict with Israel.

Mohammed Iftikhar Hanif, 27; Jawaad Hussain, 24; Asif Ali, 25; and Adil Mota, 26, are all accused of using threatening, abusive or insulting words, or behaviour, with intent, likely to stir up racial hatred.

It is alleged that they were travelling in St John’s Wood, in the north of the capital, on May 16.

Video footage of the incident was shared widely on social media shortly afterwards.

The Metropolitan Police said an investigation was quickly launched and that it arrested four men later that day.

The males from Blackburn were charged via postal requisition on September 16 and are due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on October 6.
