A terror suspect from Wembley accused of plotting to murder British and American forces in Iraq with roadside bombs seven years ago will stand trial in April.

Anis Abid Sardar, 37, was arrested by anti-terror police after they raided his home in Llandover Road, last month.

Sardar was arrested on suspicion of being involved in the manufacture of improvised explosive devices in Iraq.

He appeared at the Old Bailey today charged with conspiracy to murder and spoke only to confirm his name and followed the preliminary hearing over a videolink from Belmarsh HMP.
