A man who was alleged to be a member of an IS terror cell nicknamed the Beatles has been remanded in custody.

The 38-year-old appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, London on Thursday. He has denied being part of the cell.
He is charged with having:
Mr Davis is alleged to have asked his wife to send him money in Syria for terrorist purposes, thereby allegedly inviting her to provide funds and entering into a funding arrangement.
He is also accused of possessing a firearm for terrorist purposes after he was allegedly photographed holding one alongside militants in Syria.
The court heard that he did not wish to indicate which way he would plead to the charges. He will next appear at the Old Bailey on 2 September for a pre-trial hearing.
Mr Davis has spent more than six years in a Turkish prison.
He denied being the fourth member of an IS gang that tortured and murdered western hostages in Iraq and Syria.
The ringleader of that gang, Mohammed Emwazi, was killed in a US drone strike seven years ago.
Two others were captured in Syria, and taken to the US, where both have been convicted of committing some of the most gruesome crimes in recent history.
The terror cell was nicknamed the Beatles after the Liverpudlian band, due to the members’ English accents.
