Two men from Walsall will appear at Westminster magistrates' court over alleged terror offences Getty

Two men from Walsall men will appear at Westminster magistrates' court on Thursday (24 March) charged with helping to fund terrorism. Maruf Uddin, 26, an accountant from Earl Street, has been charged with one count of arranging funds or property for purposes of terrorism and Mohammed Atiqur Khan, 27, a warehouse distributor from Buckle Close, has been charged with two counts of the same offence.

Both men were arrested on 14 January by officers from the Counter Terrorism Unit and were granted conditional bail while further enquiries were carried out. They have been bailed to appear before magistrates in London.

West Midlands Police said the investigation was intelligence-led "with no immediate threat to public safety". Their charges came after two other men were arrested in Walsall in January as part of the same investigation and are currently remanded into custody awaiting court proceedings.

Mohammed Iqbal Hussain, 25, from Castle Road, Walsall and Mohamed Suyaubur Rohaman, 32, of the same address, were earlier charged with four counts of funding terrorism and one count of funding terrorism respectively.
