Two people have appeared in court charged with a string of terror offences including possessing instructions on how to build a mobile phone bomb, police said.
Munir Hassan Mohammed, of Leopold Street, Derby, an Eritrean national who is seeking asylum in the UK, appeared accused of preparing for an act of terror between the anniversary of 7/7 this year until his arrest in December. The 35-year-old is also charged with being a member of Islamic State (IS) and possessing instructions on how to build an explosive device inside a mobile phone. It is also alleged he disseminated terrorist material, the North East Counter-Terrorism Unit said.
Rowaida El Hassan, 32, of Willesden Lane, North London, appeared alongside him at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Saturday,
Neither Mr Mohammed nor Ms El-Hassan, who were flanked by five police officers in the dock, indicated a plea.
The pair were remanded in custody and will next appear at the Old Bailey on 12 January.
