A 17-year-old girl accused of plotting an attack on the UK is to be tried as part of the first alleged all-female terror cell.
The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, will face trial alongside Rizlaine Boular, 21, Mina Dich, 43, and Khawla Barghouti, 20, who are accused of plotting a knife attack in London.
The youth faces two charges of preparing a terror attack by attempting to travel to Syria and then planning the alleged atrocity.
The teenager is charged with communicating with Islamic State fighter Naweed Hussain and arranging to receive weapons to be used on British soil.
The details of the charge allege that she reached out to Hussain for help completing the plan having obtained instructions on training and using weapons.
Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC ruled that she will face trial with Willesden residents Dich and Barghouti, plus Boular, who is from Vauxhall.
The ruling came during a hearing at the Old Bailey on Wednesday.
Boular is accused of conspiracy to murder and preparing terrorists acts, and was shot during a raid on a property in Harlesden Road, Willesden, on April 27, in which her mother Dich and Barghouti were also arrested.
The other women are accused alongside Boular of plotting murder and assisting her in preparing terrorist acts.
An eight-day trial will be held at the Old Bailey. All defendants remain in custody.
