Three remanded on terror charges
Three men have appeared in court charged with terrorism offences after shotguns, a nail bomb, machetes and a note addressed to a right wing group were found in a car stopped by police on the M1 motorway.
Jewel Uddin 26, Omar Mohammed Khan, 27, and Mohammed Hasseen, 23, who are charged with preparing an act, or acts of terrorism, were arrested after a routine stop of a Renault Laguna by police on near Sheffield on Saturday.
It was alleged at Westminster Magistrates' Court that a cache of weapons was found in the vehicle along with a note addressed to the "English Drunkards League", an apparent reference to the far right English Defence League, which was planning a rally in South Yorkshire that day.
The three men, all from Birmingham, face an allegation that between May 1 and July 4 they took part in activities including the manufacture of an improvised explosive device, the acquisition of firearms and other weapons, and the purchase of motor vehicles connected with the charges.
They all appeared in court in black sweatshirts and dark trousers, and spoke only to confirm their names and addresses during the short hearing.
They were remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on July 31.
Four other men were also arrested last week and remain in custody.
Officers have until Wednesday to charge, release or apply for a warrant of further detention for three of them.
The fourth man can be held until Thursday.
