Zakariya Ashiq trial: Jury out in Syria terror case – BBC News

The jury has gone out in the trial of a British man accused of trying to join Islamic State in Syria.

Zakariya Ashiq, 20, from Coventry, denies two counts of preparing acts of terrorism.

The Old Bailey heard he was arrested at Heathrow in November after failing to cross the border from Jordan.

He has admitted trying to get to Syria but said he had been forced to leave the UK because he was being “harassed” by MI5.

Mr Ashiq said he had also been “tortured” by unidentified “shadowy figures”.
