A 26-year-old Briton appeared in court on Monday over a Syria-related terrorist offence after he was deported by Turkey.

Mamun Rashid, from east London, was arrested by police at Heathrow Airport on Thursday.

The arrest came after Turkey said it would deport alleged foreign ISIS members who were held in its prisons or parts of Syria it controlled following its military push into Kurdish-held regions.

Mr Rashid confirmed his identity and British nationality in court on Monday but did not enter a plea to the charge of preparing terrorist acts.

He was remanded in custody by a London magistrate and will appear in court again next month.
