    A British man has been found guilty of travelling to join so-called Islamic State in Syria.

    Mohammed Abdallah received help from his brother Abdalraouf, who set up a “hub” of communication for would-be fighters from his home in Manchester.

    The Old Bailey heard the 26-year-old intended to meet three fellow jihadis in Syria.

    Abdallah, of Westerling Way, Moss Side, Manchester, was convicted following a trial lasting more than four weeks.

    He was found guilty of possessing an AK47 gun, receiving £2,000 for terrorism purposes and membership of IS.

    Abdallah was remanded into custody until his sentencing on Friday.

    The jury heard the defendant was assisted by his disabled younger brother Abdalraouf, who was previously jailed for helping other members of the same network.
