The 31-year-old pleaded guilty Monday to being involved in the production and distribution of a video on behalf of the outlawed terror group Jammat-ul Mujahideen Bangladesh.

He also pleaded guilty to funding associates in Yemen, offering himself for terrorist training abroad and encouraging others to do the same.

He denies a series of other terror-related charges. Few details of the case have been made publicly available.

Britain's Crown Prosecution Service did not return a call seeking comment on the case.
