Terrorism charge laid
BRITISH Police have charged a man under the Terrorism Act following his arrest at Heathrow Airport last week.
Mamun Rashid, 26, from east London, was arrested at Heathrow Airport on Thursday after disembarking a flight from Turkey. It came after Turkish officials said a British suspected member of the Islamic State had been deported.
Metropolitan Police said Rashid was charged on Sunday with the preparation of terrorist acts under Section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006.
Rashid will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today.
