A suspected terrorist has appeared in court accused of urging jihadists to target Prince George in an attack at his school.

Husnain Rashid, 31, appeared at Westminster Magistrate's Court charged with two terrorism offences after allegedly sharing an image of the young royal along with the address of his London school to extremists on encrypted messaging service Telegram

Rashid, from Nelson, Lancashire, is also accused of sharing a list of popular sports stadiums and urging Jewish areas of the UK to be targeted.

The Telegram service is often used by terrorists to plan attacks.

One of the pictures he shared was of George next to a silhouette of a jihadi fighter with the caption: "Even the royal family will not be left alone," reports the Evening Standard.

Rashid is also accused of planning to travel to Isis-controlled areas of Syria to join the group.

He appeared in court only to confirm his name, date of birth and address.

He was remanded in custody until a preliminary hearing at the Old Bailey on 20 December.
