A father of two has been convicted of terrorist offences becoming the first person in the UK to face a sentence in connection with the Syria conflict. Mashudur Choudhury, 31, went to the Middle Eastern country with the intention of joining a terrorist training camp last October.
He was arrested at Gatwick Airport on his return later that month.
An official at Kingston Crown Court, south-west London, said the defendant was found guilty of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts.
During the two-week trial the court heard that Choudhury, of Stubbington Avenue, Portsmouth, travelled to Syria with four other people from his local area.
