Terror trial evidence concludes
High Court in Glasgow
Mr Siddique is on trial at the High Court in Glasgow
Evidence in the terrorism trial involving a 21-year-old man has been concluded.

The jury will hear prosecution and defence submissions on Tuesday and it is likely they will be sent out to consider their verdicts on Wednesday.

Mohammed Atif Siddique, from Alva, Clackmannanshire, denies four terror charges and a breach of the peace.

Earlier, the prosecution withdrew an allegation that Mr Siddique claimed to be part of the al-Qaeda terror network.

On the final day of evidence, the court was told that Mr Siddique had a three-month crash course in Arabic.

He had borrowed a book and a cassette called "Learn Arabic in Three Months" from Alva Public Library in March 2003, the court heard.

Mr Siddique was arrested at his family home in April 2006.

He has been accused of possessing suspicious terrorism-related items including CDs and videos of weapons use, guerrilla tactics and bomb-making.

He has also been accused of collecting terrorist-related information, setting up websites showing how to make and use weapons and explosives, and circulating inflammatory terrorist publications.

A further charge of breach of the peace relates to claims that he showed students at Glasgow Metropolitan College images of suicide bombers and terrorist beheadings.
