Related Stories

A 21-year-old woman has appeared in court charged with terror offences after allegedly making videos about the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby.

Rebekah Dawson, of east London, is also accused of encouraging terrorism by publishing a statement entitled "Muslim laughs at British Soldier killing".

She was remanded on conditional bail by Westminster Magistrates' Court.

She will appear at the Old Bailey on Friday alongside a 22-year-old man with whom it is alleged she acted jointly.

Scotland Yard said Ms Dawson, from Hackney, had been charged with dissemination of terrorist publications for allegedly making two recordings about the killing and circulating them "with the intention, either directly or indirectly, of encouraging others into the commission, preparation or instigation of an act of terrorism".

She is also accused of encouraging an act of terrorism by publishing the statement "glorifying an act of terrorism" on or about 22 May - the day Fusilier Rigby died.

Royal Barnes, also from Hackney, appeared at the same magistrates' court on Monday to face terror charges linked to the footage.

Mr Barnes, from east London, also faces a third charge of inciting terrorism overseas.

Two men - Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Adebowale, 22 - have been charged with Fusilier Rigby's murder.
