Girlfriend of jihadi fighter faces jail for sending him £1,000 to fund his terrorist activities in Syria

The girlfriend of a jihadi fighter is facing jail after sending £1,000 to Syria to fund his terrorist activities.
Hana Khan wired the money to her boyfriend Jafar Turay after he sent her ‘disturbing’ photographs of children posing with AK-47 rifles in the war ravaged country.

The 23-year-old from Willesden, northwest London was found guilty of funding terrorism at the Old Bailey today.

Turay, 28, fled the UK in 2012 after converting to Islam. He is wanted by British police on attempted murder charges said to have been committed before he travelled to Syria.

During a two week trial, jurors heard how Khan, sent him £1,000 via Western Union transfer after telling him he looked ‘beautiful’ in a photograph taken with the Islamic State flag.
