Asim Kauser accused of having bomb instructions

A man from Greater Manchester accused of having instructions on how to make the poison ricin and a bomb has appeared at the Old Bailey.

Asim Kauser, 25, of Bardon Close, Bolton, is charged with four offences under the Terrorism Act relating to material found on a computer pen drive.

He is accused of having details likely to be useful to someone committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

The judge remanded him in custody until a trial. The date is yet to be fixed.

Mr Justice Calvert-Smith said the case should be heard in Manchester.

Mr Kauser is alleged to have committed the offences between January 2009 and June 2011.

One of the charges relates to having "various instructions in how to make an improvised explosive device".

Another relates to a recipe for the poison ricin.
