A man from Bradford has been sent to prison for five years after being found guilty of three terrorism offences.
Sagheer Hussain, of Bishop Street, in the town was found guilty by a jury yesterday at Leeds Crown Court.
The 39-year-old was arrested by officers from the North East Counter Terrorism Unit last year.
The court heard how Hussain had uploaded three videos to his Google+ account via his YouTube account which were supportive of Daesh (the terrorist group also known as ISIL, ISIS and IS). He had also added comments to these videos, again in support of Daesh. Although the Google+ account only had 2 followers, because it was uploaded to a public account, over 25,000 views had been recorded before they were removed from Internet.
