The North Belfast loyalist Ihab Shoukri appeared in court today on terror charges. The 31-year-old defendant, of Alliance Road, is charged with membership of the UFF and the UDA.

He said nothing during this morning's appearance at Belfast Crown Court, and was remanded in custody until January 21.

As Shoukri entered the dock, his brother Andre gave him the thumbs up from the public gallery and five other men sitting nearby grinned at the defendant.

Minutes later, a security man told this group to keep quiet. As Ihab left the dock, his brother told him that they could speak later by phone.

Earlier this month, Ihab agreed to go back to jail of his own accord, deciding not to oppose a prosecution bid to keep him locked up.
