2 UK men charged in Syria-related investigation

The Associated Press

LONDON — British police charged two U.K. citizens in an investigation of suspected terrorism in Syria.

Mohommod Hassin Nawaz, 29, and Hamza Nawaz, 22, were arrested last week as they arrived at the British port of Dover from France. Police seized ammunition at the time.

Police said Sunday the two have been charged with conspiring to attend a terrorist training camp and with the unlawful possession of five rounds of ammunition.

Nawaz also was charged with possessing a computer containing documents or records "useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism."

The two will appear at a London court Monday.

The U.K. government has expressed concerns about Britons going to Syria to join anti-government rebels.
