Two Luton Men Deny Inviting Support For IS

Two men from Luton accused of inviting people to support Islamic State (IS) by handing out leaflets in London's West End have pleaded not guilty to terror offences.

Shah Jahah Khan, 62, and Muslim convert Ibrahim Anderson, 38, each deny one charge of inviting support for a banned organisation.

Westminster Magistrates' Court heard that the charge relates to an offence on August 9 last year, when the pair are alleged to have handed out leaflets about IS in Oxford Street.

Anderson also denied one charge of possessing information likely to be useful for the preparation of or carrying out an act of terrorism, when police searched his property in December last year.

Anderson and Khan remained standing throughout the hearing, "in accordance with their religious beliefs", defence counsel Tony Lodge said.

Senior district judge Howard Riddle granted the two men conditional bail and they will appear at the Old Bailey on May 15.
