A 27-year-old man from West Yorkshire has pleaded guilty to posting a link to an IS propaganda magazine on his public Facebook page.

Hassan Munir, of Heaton, Bradford, admitted disseminating an electronic file of the terrorist publication on October 14 last year.

Mr Justice Saunders adjourned sentencing to a date to be fixed following a brief hearing at the Old Bailey.

The charge stated that: “Hassan Munir, on the 14th day of October 2014 provided a service to others, namely posted an electronic link on his publicly accessible Facebook profile that enabled them to obtain, read, listen to or look at a terrorist publication, namely Dabiq 4.”

Dabiq is the title of an online magazine used by the terrorist organisation Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant for propaganda and recruitment.
