REUTERS, LONDON  - British police charged four men on Thursday with conspiring to support the Sri Lankan rebel group the Tamil Tigers.

Arunachalam Chrishanthakumar, 51, Jegatheswaran Muraleetharan, 46, Jeyatheswaran Vythyatharan, 39, and Murugesu Jegatheeswaran, 33, will all appear at Westminster Magistrates Court later on Thursday.

They are charged with conspiring to receive laptop computers, torches, circuit boards, lithium batteries, GPS and radio equipment, navigation systems and high power magnets "for the purposes of terrorism".

All four were arrested over the last 10 days.

Police said two people had previously been charged in connection with the same inquiry.

The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) is a rebel group fighting for an independent state in the north and east of Sri Lanka.

Fighting between Sri Lankan government forces and the LTTE has intensified since the Colombo government pulled out of a six-year-old ceasefire pact in January.
