A British Muslim linked to Woolwich murder suspect Michael Adebolajo will stand trial for terrorism offences in November.

Ibrahim Abdullah-Hassan, also known as Abu Nusaybah, 28, of Carr Road, Walthamstow, appeared via videolink at the Old Bailey on Monday together with Shah Jalal Hussain, 31, of Cannon Street Road, Whitechapel.

The pair will stand trial for terror offences  on November 25 but the location has not been decided.

Nusaybah was arrested moments after he was interviewed on BBC's Newsnight programme claiming that his friend, Adebolajo, had been offered a job by MI5.

Nusaybah was charged with three offences under the terrorism act relating to filmed recordings of lectures and written text.

Hussain faces two charges connected to the alleged dissemination of terrorist publications.

No applications for bail were made and the pair were remanded in custody to appear at the court for a plea hearing on October 21.
