LONDON (AP) — Two British brothers have pleaded guilty to conspiracy for planning to attend a terrorist training camp in Syria.

Hamza Nawaz, 24, and 30-year-old Mohommod Nawaz were arrested in September in Dover after arriving in England from France. Police say they were carrying ammunition.

Prosecutors said they had driven from their home in the London area to France and then flown to Turkey before entering Syria.

The brothers admitted guilt Tuesday and will be sentenced June 9.

British officials have warned of an increasing risk of Britons traveling to Syria to take part in the fighting there and then returning home to launch attacks.
