Teenage girl charged with terror offences for having ‘Anarchy Cookbook'

A 16-year-old girl has appeared in court in the UK charged with two terror offences.

The teenager from Manchester, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was held in April after an investigation by the North West Counter Terrorism Unit.

She appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court in London today charged with two offences under section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000.

The first charge states that on or before April 3, the girl possessed a document containing information of a kind likely to be of use to a person preparing or committing an act of terrorism, namely a recipe for explosives.

The second charge states that on or before April 3, she possessed a document containing information of a kind likely to be of use to a person preparing or committing an act of terrorism, namely the 'Anarchy Cookbook'.

The girl, wearing a headscarf, black cardigan and white shirt, sat in the dock with her uncle during the brief hearing.

She was released on conditional bail by District Judge Howard Riddle and told to appear at Manchester Youth Court on July 28.

Her bail conditions include that she must obey a curfew and not leave England or Wales or apply for any travel documents.
