Mugshots of two men from Birmingham who travelled to Syria to fight have been released after they earlier admitted preparing to carry out terrorist attacks.

Speaking after around 200 people had to be evacuated from a multi-storey hotel in Birmingham city centre due to a fire in a neighbouring kebab shop this morning, general manager at Hampton by Hilton Matt Hutchings said:
On being alerted to the fire at Food Republic, which is located directly next door, at 6am this morning, we immediately put our fire drill into practice. This involved the evacuation of all guests and staff to the nearby Novotel as a precautionary measure.
I can confirm that all guests and staff are safe and accounted for. Indeed, the fire was quickly brought under control and, following advice from the fire services, guests and staff have since returned to the hotel, which is once again fully operational.”
Judge Topolski QC has said he would not pass sentence on the two men until a Court of Appeal decision about a similar case had been heard later this summer.
However, sentencing is due to open this afternoon.
The judge earlier told the court that he was willing to offer a reduction in sentence if the defendants were to plead guilty.
He described the case as a "grave one".
The families of Mohammed Nahin Ahmed and Yusuf Zubair Sarwar urged both men to return home when they realised they had gone to fight in Syria.
Sarwar's family reported him missing to police in May last year after they found a hand-written letter from him in which said he had left to join a terrorist group called Kataib al Muhajireen (KaM)- later renamed Kateeba al-Kawthar - "to do jihad".
Days earlier he had told his family he was travelling to Turkey as part of a two-week trip organised by Birmingham City University, where he was a part-time computer science student.
West Midlands Police said the men showed the mind-set to go and join the jihad in Syria, before carrying out research, buying equipment, and finally travelling a well-trod route to get inside the battle zone via Turkey.
Two young men from Birmingham who have pleaded guilty to preparing acts of terrorism while in Syria, had lied to their parents they were actually on holiday in Turkey.
Yusuf Sarwar and Nahin Ahmed, who are both 22 and from Handsworth, bought one-way tickets in May 2013 then crossed the Syrian border to train with rebel fighters.
They were arrested by officers from the West Midlands Police counter terrorism unit when they returned to Heathrow on a flight from Istanbul in January this year.
Traces of military grade explosives were found on their clothing and pictures on their camera showed them brandishing weapons.
