London brothers-in-law charged with terror offences

Two brothers-in-law have appeared in court charged with terror offences.

Ahmed Aweys, 32, of Redbridge, east London and Abdulaziz Omer Munye, 26, of Romford, east London, appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

Mr Aweys has been charged with dissemination of terrorist publications and Mr Munye has been charged under section 2 of the Terrorism Act.

The men, who are both Somali, were ordered to next appear in custody at the Old Bailey on 31 August.

The Metropolitan Police said the charges stemmed from an ongoing counter-terror operation which has resulted in four arrests.

A 30-year-old woman detained on suspicion of terrorism offences on Thursday morning remains in custody while a 29-year-old man, who was arrested on 18 April, remains on bail.
