The youngest person in Britain to have been convicted under the Terrorism Act has been sentenced to two years in a young offenders' institution.
Sentencing him at the Old Bailey, Judge Timothy Pontius said Munshi "fell under the spell of fanatical extremists".
"There is no doubt that you knew what you were doing," the judge told him.

I honestly don't mean to sound "harsh" but I knew the implications of "Right and Wrong" and "blowing people up" when I was like... 6, or 7.
His family backed the sentence, but said the case showed how easily a teenager could be groomed.
Munshi was convicted last month of making a record of information likely to be used for terrorist purposes, but cleared of possessing terrorist material.
During his trial at Blackfriars Crown Court, the jury heard that he had spent many hours viewing jihadist websites and had downloaded guides to making napalm, detonators and explosives.

Is it actually illegal to have information about making dangerous things?
Where does it start and end?
You can find an article to make high-quality wooden bokken (swords) or bows/crossbows on instructables.com...
Plenty of Youtube videos show how to make your own one-shot firearms...
Is it only against the law when you possess information about gunpowder or explosives? Last I had heard, it was legal to buy "The Anarchist's Cookbook".
