A 26-year-old man who wanted to flee to Syria from the UK to join the dreaded Islamic State militant group was today found guilty in a secret trial here. 

Anas Abdalla, from Birmingham, has denied preparing for acts of terrorism by hiding in a lorry with another extremist.

He was convicted by a majority of 11 to one and will be sentenced at a later date. 

Abdalla, born in Mogadishu in Somalia, who first came to the UK as an asylum seeker told the Old Bailey court that he was fleeing unwarranted security services intrusion in his life.
