Two Britons found guilty over terror funding in Syria

Two Britons found guilty over terror funding in SyriaTwo UK men have been convicted of using Syria aid convoys to funnel cash to extremists in the war zone, BBC said on Friday.

The Old Bailey heard the high-profile convoys led by the Muslim community became unwitting vehicles for the plan to fund terrorism.

One of the targeted aid missions included Alan Henning, the Eccles taxi driver later kidnapped and murdered by militants from so-called Islamic State.

This is the first court verdict showing that some aid convoys were abused.

Syed Hoque, 37, of Stoke-on-Trent, and Mashoud Miah, 27, of east London, were both convicted of funding terrorism between 2012 and 2014.

A third man, Huddersfield charity worker Pervez Rafiq, 46, was cleared of involvement in their plans.

Mohammed Hussain, 30, of east London, was also found not guilty.
