A woman from Hoxton has been charged with possessing terrorist material.

Ruksana Begum, 22, of Provost Estate, off Provost Street is charged with possession of a digital memory card containing a document likely to be of use to a terrorist. She was arrested on July 5.

She will appear at Westminster Magistrates Court today alongside three men charged with offences that involved travelling to Pakistan for training in terrorism, as well as another man charged with three counts of possession of terrorist material.

Richard Dart, 29, of Broadway, Ealing – who appeared in a BBC Three documentary after converting to Islam – Imran Mahmood, 21 of Dabbs Hill Lane, Northolt and Jahangir Alom, 26, of Abbey Road, Stratford, are all charged with preparing for acts of terrorism between July 25, 2010 and July 6, 2012.
