3 British men jailed for terrorism training

LONDON — Three British Muslims, including a convert who was featured in a documentary about radical Islam and a former London police support officer, were jailed Thursday in London for traveling to Pakistan for terrorism training.

Richard Dart, Imran Mahmood, and Jahangir Alom pleaded guilty last month.

Dart had appeared in a BBC documentary that chronicled the efforts of his filmmaker stepbrother to understand why he had embraced an uncompromising form of Islam.

Dart, 30 — a former BBC security guard — was in a YouTube video in which he criticized the royal family, the marriage of Prince William to Kate Middleton, and UK foreign policy — was jailed for six years.

Alom, a 26-year-old former police support officer, appeared in a video expounding hardline beliefs and was sentenced to four years. Mahmood, 22, received more than nine years.

In sentencing, Judge Peregrine Simon told the three they had shown themselves to be “committed to acts of terrorism.”
