British man faces terrorism charges

A British man was charged with "terrorist-related" offenses Wednesday, Britain's Metropolitan Police Service said in a statement.

Rajib Karim, 30, of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, is scheduled to appear at the city of Westminster's Magistrates' Court Thursday, the statement said.

British media have reported that Karim works at a British Airways call center.

Karim remains in custody, police said. He is charged with two counts of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts and fundraising for the purpose of terrorism.

The alleged offenses took place between April 13, 2006, and February 25, 2010, "with the intention of committing acts of terrorism outside the U.K. or assisting another to commit such acts," police said.

Further details were not released.
