Date set for Bermudians on UK terror charges
Two Bermudians charged with terrorism offences in Britain will be tried at London’s Old Bailey next month.
Hisham Waheed Muhammad is accused of preparation for acts of terror and Faisal Ibn al Hajj Muhammad Abu Ahmad was charged with failure to notify the authorities.
The two were arrested after a raid on a home in Whitefield, Bury, Greater Manchester.
It is alleged that weapons and extremist literature in support of the terror group Islamic State were found at the house.
Both men were said to have been living in the UK “for a significant period of time” before they were arrested on June 4.
The trial is expected to start on January 21.
