A 16-year-old schoolgirl from the UK faces terrorism charges as she possessed materials that described how to make a bomb or a weapon on a 3D printer.


According to prosecutors the information that she had would be of special use to someone who would plan a terror attack. 

The name of the girl is not known to the public as her age prohibits the publication of her personal details.

The girl faces not only the charge concerning bomb instructions as she also faces charges of offences related to digital documents.

The materials that she had in possession suggest that she prepared a terrorist attack on the 22nd of August last year.
