A serving member of the British Army appeared in court on Saturday charged with a terror offence and a bomb hoax.
Daniel Abed Khalife, 21, was remanded in custody after his brief appearance in London's Westminster Magistrates' Court.
London police said he was charged on Friday over two incidents at a Royal Air Force (RAF) base in Stafford, central England, near the army barracks where he lives.
Khalife is accused of "attempting to elicit information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism" in August 2021.
He was also charged with a bomb hoax by placing a suspect device at the RAF base on January 2 this year.
Khalife, wearing a grey jumper and blue jeans, spoke only to confirm his identity. He will appear in the same court again on February 3. (AFP)
