A man has been charged with eight terrorism offences in connection with his work at a mosque.
Kamran Sabir Hussain is accused of encouraging support for so-called Islamic State (IS) at the site in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, police said.
He is accused of giving a sermon to a congregation “with the alleged purpose” of encouraging support for IS.
The 39-year-old, of Knightsbridge Way, Tunstall, is set to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court later.
The offences are alleged to have taken place between June and September 2016.
They accuse the defendant of publishing a statement which intended, or was reckless, as to whether members of the public would be encouraged or induced by the statement to commit, prepare or instigate acts of terrorism.
