Teenager in court over Facebook comments on dead soldiers

A teenager accused of posting a grossly offensive message on Facebook about the deaths of six members of the 3rd Yorkshire battalion is appearing in court today.

Azhar Ahmed, from Ravensthorpe in West Yorkshire, seen here arriving at Kirkless magistrates court, denies the charge. It's alleged he commented on the level of attention given to the soldiers who died, compared to Afghan civilians who've died in the war.
