Two men have been charged with Syria-related terrorism offences.

Mohammed Iqbal Hussain, 23, of Castle Road, Walsall, has been charged with four counts of funding terrorism under the Terrorism Act 2000.

Mohamed Suyaubur Rohaman, 32, of the same address, has been charged with one count of funding terrorism.

Both were arrested last Tuesday and are due before Westminster Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, West Midlands Police said.

Two other men arrested by counter-terrorism officers in Walsall on Thursday on suspicion of Syria-related terrorism offences have been released on police bail until a date in April pending further inquiries.

The arrests were intelligence-led and there was no immediate threat to public safety, the force added.
