LONDON — Two men are due to appear in London court charged with traveling to Syria intending to commit acts of terrorism.
Yusuf Sarwar and Mohammed Ahmed — both 21 and from Birmingham, central England — were arrested at Heathrow Airport on Monday after arriving on a flight from Turkey.
The men stand accused of traveling to Syria on or before May 15, 2013 via Istanbul, Turkey, “with the intention of committing acts of terrorism” and preparing to engage in acts of terrorism.
They will appear Saturday at Westminster Magistrates Court in London.
Police have said the case is not connected to the arrest on Friday of another 21-year-old from Birmingham on suspicion of attending a terrorist training camp in Syria.
