Britain’s most high-profile radical preacher Anjem Choudary faces 10 years in prison after being found guilty of supporting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), it has emerged.

Choudary was convicted at the Old Bailey following years of speculation suggesting he was a supporter of the jihadist group, which has seized territory in Iraq and Syria and inspired terrorist attacks across Europe.

An associate, Mohammed Rahman, was also convicted in July. An embargo on the trial was lifted on Tuesday.

The court heard the pair had told supporters to obey Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed ‘caliph’ of IS.
