Three members of the same family are facing possible jail for having Islamic State (IS) propaganda.

Asma Aweys, 30, from Edmonton, north London, today pleaded guilty to collecting three copies of an IS magazine in November and December 2016 and January 2017.

Her brother Ahmed Aweys, 32, of Chadwell Heath, and husband Abdulaziz Abu Munye, 27, have previously been convicted of dissemination of terrorist material.

Munye admitted a single charge while his brother-in-law pleaded guilty to four counts.

The charges state the publications contain information useful to a person preparing acts of terrorism.
