Runa Khan jailed for Facebook Syria terror posts


A woman in Bedfordshire, England, as been sentenced to more than five years in jail for promoting terrorism on Facebook.

Runa Khan, from Luton, had previously admitted inciting terrorism in Syria.

Khan, 35, of Maple Road West, had posted a picture of a suicide vest and unwittingly passed details of a route into the country to an undercover police officer.

During sentencing, Kingston Crown Court heard police had found photos of Khan’s children holding guns and swords.

Judge Peter Birts QC said the “only fair interpretation” of those pictures was that Khan had intended to radicalise others.

In an interview with BBC Newsnight, she said: “I was posting up my belief.”
