Dutch Moroccan on terror charges in Britain

A Dutch Moroccan woman caught with a computer memory stick containing thousands of documents on how to make explosives was sentenced to two years in jail by a court in Manchester on Monday.

Houria Chahed Chentouf, 41, admitted two counts of possessing documents likely to be useful for a terrorist purpose, the BBC said.
Officers found the stick when she was stopped at Liverpool airport in 2008.
The mother-of-six lived in The Hague for more than 20 years and the Dutch authorities were also involved in the inquiry, the BBC said.
The court was told Chentouf suffered from a mental illness which may have influenced her behaviour. In sentencing, the judge said there is no evidence she intended to pass the information on to anybody.
