A U.K. court has charged three men from the same family a range of serious terror offences in a Northern Ireland court.

Paul John Duffy, Damien Duffy, and Shane Duffy, all appeared at Lisburn Magistrates Court on Saturday to face charges of conspiracy to murder, collecting information likely to be of use to terrorists, planning acts of terrorism and conspiring to cause an explosion. Paul John Duffy also faced an extra charge of directing dissident republican terrorism. All three are held in custody.

The three were part of a group of seven people arrested last week in relation to a terror investigation.
