The brother of a Portsmouth man killed while fighting for Islamic State (IS) in Syria has appeared in court charged with preparing acts of terrorism.

Mustakim Jaman, 23, of Hudson Road, Southsea, is accused of offences under section five of the Terrorism Act 2006.

He was remanded in custody by Westminster magistrates to appear before the Old Bailey on 14 November.

Mr Jaman is the brother of Ifthekar Jaman, who was killed in Syria in December 2013.

Another brother, Tuhin Shahensha, 26, has also been charged with terrorism offences.

Mr Shahensha, also of Hudson Road, appeared in court on Friday accused of planning to fight in Syria. He is also due to appear at the Old Bailey on 14 November.

The two men were arrested along with a number of other people in Hampshire and London on 14 October by the South East Counter Terrorism Unit (SECTU).

A 57-year-old man and a 48-year-old woman were released on bail.

A 23-year-old woman from Farnborough and a 29-year-old woman from Greenwich, south-east London, were released without charge.
