The three men appeared by videolink at the Old Bailey

Three men have appeared at the Old Bailey accused of supplying equipment to terrorists fighting abroad.

Mohammed Nadim, 29, Shahid Ali, 34, and Shabir Mohammed, 30, from Birmingham, made an appearance by videolink.

The men, who were remanded in custody until later this month, are expected to enter pleas next year.

It is alleged that between April 2006 and February 2007 the three men supplied equipment to other people for use in terrorism.

Mr Nadim, of Bordesley Green; Mr Ali, of Ward End; and Mr Mohammed, of Sparkhill, have been charged with engaging in conduct with the intention of assisting in the commission of acts of terrorism.

The three men were arrested during dawn raids last month along with another man, Abdul Raheem, 31, of Ward End, Birmingham.

He is due back in court on 21 November, charged with failing to disclose information that could have helped to prevent acts of terrorism.
