The sentencing of two men who admitted terrorism offences has been delayed for the second time. 

Ibrahim Abdullah-Hassan, 28, of Carr Road in Walthamstow, and Shah Jalal Hussain, 31, of Cannon Street Road, in Whitechapel, admitted encouraging terrorism and disseminating terrorist material at the Old Bailey on March 24.

The pair previously denied publishing lectures calling for a holy war against the West but changed their plea.

Abdullah-Hassan, also known as Abu Nusaybeh, and Hussain were found to have posted a link on their website of an extremist speech by senior Al Qaeda recruiter, Anwar al-Awlaki.

The pair were due to be sentenced on May 2 but it was adjourned until yesterday.

They have now been remanded in custody to re-appear at the Old Bailey on Thursday.
