Man charged with terror offences

A Tyneside man has been charged with a series of terror offences, police in London have said.

Rajib Karim, aged 30 and of Newcastle, has been accused of committing three offences under the Terrorism Act.

The three charges span a four-year period, from 13 April 2006 to 25 February this year, and relate to offences inside and outside of the UK.

He is due to appear before London's City of Westminster Magistrates' Court on Thursday.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan police said Karim had been charged following advice from the Crown Prosecution Service Counter Terrorism Division.

Karim faces two charges of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts and one charge of fundraising for the purposes of terrorism.
