British Woman Charged With Terrorism

A British Muslim woman is due to appear in court today to face charges of possessing information likely to be useful to someone preparing acts of terrorism. Despite the relatively innocuous charge she is alleged to have a whole host of terrorism manuals. These include the Al-Qaeda Manual, the Terrorists Handbook and the Mujahideen Poisons Handbook; not to mention books about the use of weapons.

She is being tried as part of the same investigation which caught a man, Sohail Anjum, trying to smuggle money and equipment into Pakistan for terrorist activities.
