A Belfast man has been remanded in custody after appearing in court in the city at the weekend charged with terror offences.

Daniel McClean has been accused of membership of a proscribed organisation, the IRA.

He is further charged with possession of documents likely to be of use to terrorists, and possession of a firearm.

Appearing in the dock of Belfast Magistrates Court wearing a grey sweatshirt and sporting a grey beard, McClean nodded to indicate he understood the charges.

A police officer told the court that she believes she can connect the accused (52), of Lagmore Gardens in Belfast, to the charges.

There was no application for bail by his legal team during the brief hearing.

McClean was remanded in custody by District Judge Mark Hamill.

He is due to appear in court again on May 10.
