A BOY aged 16 from Dewsbury has appeared in court charged in connection with an anti-terrorism operation.
The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is charged with conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to cause a public nuisance by use of poisons and/or explosives. He was remanded in custody.
The teenager's parents attended the brief court hearing.
The boy appeared before Bow Street Magistrates' Court in central London alongside 21-year-old Aaib Hussain Khan.
Khan, from West Yorkshire, was charged with two offences under the Terrorism Act.
Both charges allege that on June 6 at Manchester Airport he possessed an article, namely a computer hard drive and contents, in circumstances which gave rise to the suspicion that his possession was for a purpose connected with the commission, preparation or instigation of an act of terrorism.
Khan is also charged with conspiracy to murder person or persons unknown and with conspiracy to cause a public nuisance by use of poisons and/or explosives to cause disruption, fear or injury.
No bail application was made on behalf of either Khan or the teenager.
Khan was remanded in custody until June 30 when he will appear at the Old Bailey.
Khan was arrested at the airport on June 6. The teenager was arrested the following day.
