British Soldier To Be Prosecuted For Owning A Book

Posted at 9:13PM Wednesday 26 Mar 2014

A British soldier is to be charged with terrorism and explosives offences over allegations that he made an improvised bomb and had a copy of the bomb-making manual The Anarchist Cookbook.

"It is alleged that between 31 May 2012 and 29 November 2013, Ryan Adam McGee had possession of a document or record for terrorist purposes, namely a copy of The Anarchist Cookbook. He has been charged with one offence contrary to section 58(1)(b) of the Terrorism Act 2000."

The Anarchist Cookbook, first published in 1971, contains instructions for the manufacture of explosives as well as for home manufacturing of illicit drugs. It's currently available from Amazon.co.uk for £5.65. Buyer beware.
