LONDON, UK: Local newspapers are reporting that a dental student from Plymouth will have to stand trial for terrorist offences in London next month. The individual, Abdurahman Kaabar, originally of Upperthorpe in Sheffield, is accused of three offences of possessing records of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism and four offences of disseminating terrorist publications.

It is understood that the 22-year-old is a UK citizen of Libyan descent and is studying dentistry at Plymouth University. He was arrested last week by South Yorkshire Police after an investigation by the North East Counter Terrorism Unit.

Kaabar has been remanded in custody and will appear before the Old Bailey in September. He pleaded not guilty to the charges, according to court documents.

It is unknown whether the arrest is connected to the arrest in June of another dental student from Sheffield, who was charged for the early attack planning of a terrorist attack and will stand trial in November.
