Two men arrested at the Port of Dover have appeared in court today after being charged with terrorism and firearms offences.
Mohommod Hassin Nawaz, 29, and 22-year-old Hamza Nawaz are accused of attending a terrorist training camp in Syria.
They were detained in Kent after arriving on a ferry from Calais in the early hours of last Monday.
The pair, of Dirleton Road, Stratford, in east London, appeared before Westminster Magistrates' Court this morning and remanded in custody until an appearance at the Old Bailey on Monday, October 21.
They were arrested on suspicion of being involved in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism under the Terrorism Act.
Scotland Yard said they have both been charged with conspiring to attend "a place used for terrorist training knowing" and being in possession of a stash of rifle ammunition.
Mohommod Hassin Nawaz is also accused of with being in possession of a laptop computer containing "information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism".
The Dover arrests sparked Metropolitan Police raids on a property in east London and two vehicles.
A 37-year-old man and a woman, 36, arrested on suspicion of terror offences in Essex have been released without charge.
