Five people charged with terrorism offences and conspiracy to murder have appeared before a court in Glasgow .
They appeared separately in private at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
They were charged with the preparation of terrorist acts and conspiracy to murder.
The four men and a woman – all aged between 26 and 39 – were detained last week as part of an operation focusing on dissident republicanism.
They were arrested at several locations in an operation led by Police Scotland and involving the Police Service of Northern Ireland and the security service.
Following the arrests, Police Scotland said the operation focused on the "activities of individuals sympathetic to dissident Republicanism but who are not affiliated to any specific group".
The court appearances came amid heightened security with armed officers in and outside the court building.
