A FORMER Coventry University student has denied charges including attempted murder after an attack outside the Houses of Parliament.
It is alleged Salih Khater, 29, tried to kill police officers and pedestrians by ploughing his car onto the pavement.
It is claimed he deliberately drove his Ford Fiesta into cyclists and passers-by before appearing to target police in Westminster, London, on August 14 last year.
The Birmingham man is alleged to have eventually driven into a barrier after injuring three people, missing police officers.
Today (January 14) at a preliminary hearing at the Old Bailey, he pleaded not guilty to two counts of attempted murder and two separate counts of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm.
His trial is scheduled for June 24.
The UK national, of Highgate Street, Birmingham, originally from Sudan, studied accountancy at Coventry University between September 2017 and May last year.
He denies all four charges and was remanded in custody.
