LATEST: Two men appeared in a London court yesterday (04NOV04) accused of selling stolen photographs of British Pop Idol winner Will Young.

Police arrested unemployed SHARIFE EL-WHABE and ANNIS SEDDIKI, who both deny the charges, in a snooker club on Wednesday (03NOV04).

El-Whabe, 24, is also charged with burgling Young's luxury apartment in Notting Hill, West London. He is accused of stealing the 25-year-old singer's clothes, laptop computer, a bag and photos, worth a total of $18,720 (GBP10,400).

Both men were refused bail and remanded in custody at the court hearing.

District Judge Paul Clark's decision angered El-Whabe, who swore at him as he was taken away.
