A British woman has appeared in court accused of financially supporting her husband while he allegedly attended terrorism training in Pakistan.

Mehreen Haji, 26, of Cheetham Hill, Manchester, is accused of two counts of entering into funding arrangements for the purposes of terrorism.

She appeared at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court in central London.

She was bailed to reappear before the court on 2 November, when the case is expected to be sent to the crown court.

Bail was granted on condition the mother-of-two live and sleep at her father's house, in Cheetham Hill, and abide by a curfew between 0600 and 1800 BST.

She was told she would be electronically monitored and her passport held by police.

Mrs Haji was also banned from applying for any international travel documents.

It is alleged that on 11 May, Mrs Haji entered into an arrangement which led to 2,500 being made available to Habib Ahmed, despite knowing or having reasonable suspicion the money would, or might be used, for the purposes of terrorism.

She faces a similar charge that she provided Mr Ahmed, 26, also of Elmfield Street, Cheetham Hill, with 1,999 on 12 May.

Both alleged offences are contrary to the Terrorism Act 2000.
