Most 14-year-old teenage are still enjoying childhood but not for a young British boy.

The 14-year-old schoolboy from Darlington was charged with terror related charges after being caught in possession of a terrorism magazine.

He can not been named because of his age. He has now become one of the youngest people in the world to be convicted of terror charges.

He was charged three offences contrary to section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000. He pleaded guilty to all charges. 

Terrorism has become a global catastrophe with terror groups now targetting children to sow their seeds. 

They send out publications and other material to teens in their efforts to grow their numbers. It is therefore imperatively important for parents and guardians to monitor what their children are doing online.

 

The Thulsie twins were arrested some few years back in South Africa on terror related charges. They were teenagers back then. 

Their case is still ongoing and they have remained in custody since. 

Terrorism is a serious offence.
