Muslim student sentenced to eight years
by UPI

EDINBURGH, Scotland -- A British-born Muslim student was sentenced to eight years in prison after being found with a laptop computer containing terrorist propaganda.

Mohammed Atif Siddique, 21, of Alva, Clackmannanshire, was sentenced Monday in High Court in Edinburgh, Scotland, for possessing and distributing terrorist material via the Internet, The Scotsman reported Tuesday.

"It is clear from the evidence that you did not have this material because of some innocent curiosity," the judge told Siddique.

Siddique was arrested April 5, 2005, when he tried to board a flight to Pakistan and security authorities searched the files on the laptop, the Scotsman reported.

The computer files contained propaganda from al-Qaida glorifying terrorism, especially suicide bombing, and encouraged the recruitment of British nationals, The Scotsman said.
