Two men and a woman have been charged with terror offences after they were arrested in Birmingham two weeks ago.

Mohammed Ali Ahmed, 26, Zakaria Boufassil, 26, and Soumaya Boufassil, 29, were arrested on April 14 and 15 on suspicion of terror-related crimes.

They are due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday.

Ahmed and Zakaria Boufassil are charged with commission of offences abroad on or before July 7 2015, under section 17 of the Terrorism Act 2006.

They are accused of entering into an arrangement in which money was made available to another person, and that they knew, or had reasonable cause to suspect, it would or may be used for the purposes of terrorism.

Ahmed and Soumaya Boufassil are charged with preparation of terrorist acts between January 1 2015 and April 8 2016, under section five of the Terrorism Act 2006.

They are accused of intending to commit acts of terrorism, or assisting another to commit such acts, by collecting money.

Two other men arrested on April 14 and 15 have been released on bail.

Fazal Sajjad Younis Khan, 40, has been charged with possession of CS spray and is due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates' Court on Friday May 13.

A 59-year-old man has been released on bail without charge.
