Ten men and one woman appear in a London court on charges of violating anti-terrorism laws. Prosecutors said Monday they would charge the group in connection with an alleged plot to blow up U.S.-bound airliners.

British police initially arrested two dozen people.

Eleven people remain in custody without charges as the British investigation continues.
