Bolton man Asim Kauser in court over terror charges

A 25-year-old man is due to appear in court later charged with four offences under the Terrorism Act.

Asim Kauser has been charged with possession of records of information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

Mr Kauser was arrested at his Bolton home on 6 June in an operation by the North West Counter-Terrorism Unit.

He will appear at London's City of Westminster Magistrates' Court.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between January 2009 and June 2011, a Greater Manchester Police spokesman said.
