LONDON: Three British Muslims, including a convert who was featured in a documentary about radical Islam and a former London police support officer, have been jailed for terror offenses.

Richard Dart, Imran Mahmood and Jahangir Alom pleaded guilty last month for traveling to Pakistan for terror training between 2010 and 2012.

Dart, who appeared in a BBC documentary that chronicled the efforts of his filmmaker stepbrother to understand why he had embraced an uncompromising form of Islam, was jailed for six years Thursday at London's Old Bailey court.

Alom, a former police support officer who appeared in an online video expounding hardline beliefs, was sentenced to four years and Mahmood to more than nine years.
