Former Guantanamo Bay detainee Moazzam Begg will appear in court today, charged with Syria-related terror offences.
Begg, 45, of Boden Road, Hall Green, Birmingham, is accused of providing terrorist training and funding terrorism overseas, West Midlands Police said.
He will appear at Westminster Magistrates Court alongside a woman, Gerrie Tahari, 44, of Ashway, Sparkbrook, Birmingham, who is charged with facilitating terrorism overseas.
Both were arrested on Tuesday. Two other men arrested the same day remain in police custody.
Begg was held in the US-run military prison at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba for nearly three years.
