A man from Northern Ireland charged with receiving weapons training from opposition forces in the Syrian civil war has told police he was involved in battles against both Islamic State fighters and the government regime, a court has heard.

Eamon Bradley, from Derry, gave police extensive reports of his role in the conflict earlier this year, the city's magistrates court was told.

He was arrested on Thursday after returning from Syria. He appeared in court charged under UK terror legislation with committing two offences in Syria - possession of explosives with intent to endanger life, namely a grenade, and receiving training in arms and explosives.
