A man who allegedly threatened to kill Tony Blair and Gordon Brown in a posting on a jihadi website was remanded in custody today.
Ishaq Kanmi, 22, appeared before City of Westminster Magistrates' Court, in London, along with two other men.
Kanmi is accused of threatening to "eliminate" Mr Brown and Mr Blair, being a member of al-Qa'ida, and encouraging others to join the organisation.
He is accused of spreading terrorist literature along with co-defendant Abbas Iqbal, 23.
Iqbal is also charged with owning terrorist material, including camouflage equipment.
Kanmi and Iqbal were remanded in custody to appear before the Old Bailey on 1 October.
Iqbal's brother Ilyas, 21, is accused of possessing terrorist material and conducting research into terror.
He pleaded not guilty to all charges and was remanded in custody to appear before City of Westminster magistrates on 19 September for committal.
All three men are from Blackburn, Lancashire, and were arrested on 14 August.
