A jury has been sent out to consider verdicts in the trial of a mother accused of taking her toddler son to Syria to join Islamic State (IS).
Tareena Shakil, of Beechfield Road in Birmingham and formerly of Burton-upon-Trent, has admitted travelling to the self-declared caliphate but denied becoming a member of the feared terror group IS - also known as Isis.
The 26-year-old also denies encouraging terrorism through Twitter posts she made before going abroad in October 2014, or being reckless as to whether she was encouraging acts of terror in doing so.
She is the first British woman to have returned from IS-held territory to face these terror charges.
The jury will continue its deliberations on Thursday.
