He added that Muhammed Saeed, 21, who is awaiting sentencing for terror offences, has also been charged with assaulting the prison officer.

The trio are due to appear at Bromley Magistrates Court on April 7. 

Abedi was jailed for 55 years last year after being found guilty in March 2020 of the murder of 22 people – including an eight-year-old girl – after an Ariana Grande concert in May 2017. 

Hassan was handed a life sentence with a minimum term of 34 years in March 2018 after trying to blow up a packed tube train in west London. 

Saeed was remanded in custody after being convicted of terrorism offences in November last year, for which he is due to be sentenced early this year.
