Brothers were today handed sentences of four and half and three years
Two brothers have been jailed for conspiring to attend a terror training camp in Syria and were caught after taking 'trophy' pictures on their phones.
Mohommod Nawaz, 30, was jailed for four-and-a-half years and his younger brother Hamza Nawaz, 24, was given three years at the Old Bailey today.
The brothers brought back bullets and took the pictures on their mobile phones to remember their time in the jihadist camp - which were later found by police and used to prove their guilt.
The court heard that the brothers only came back to London because Mohommod was missing his girlfriend, who had agreed to marry him while he was away. They are no longer together.

British Brothers Jailed for Attending Terrorist Training Camp in Syria
Brothers Mohommod Hassin Nawaz, 31, Hamza Nawaz, 23, became the first Britons Wednesday to be convicted for attending a military training camp in Syria.
The brothers were found guilty of conspiracy to attend a terrorist training camp, and the judge at London's Old Bailey sentenced Mohommod and Hamza to four and three and a half years in prison, respectively.
The brothers were arrested in September 2013 after rifle ammunition, cash, and a balaclava were found in their car at the southeastern port of Dover.
Police also found communication on their phones indicating they had attended a camp in the Latakia province of Syria.
