Three women arrested in east London over terror offences



Three women have been arrested on suspicion of terror offences linked to a police operation where a woman was shot last week.
 
The suspects, two aged 18 and one 19-year-old, were held after raids by the Metropolitan Police Counter-Terrorism Command in east London on Monday.


They are being questioned at a police station outside London on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of terrorist acts.


The Met Police has said the arrests were part of an "ongoing intelligence-led operation" linked to a raid on Thursday last week in Harlesden Road, north London.


A 21-year-old woman was shot and wounded by armed police during that raid. She was discharged from hospital on Sunday following treatment and has been taken in for questioning.
 
 
A total of 10 people have been arrested in connection with the Harlesden Road operation, in which police are believed to have foiled an active terror plot.


Aged between 16 and 43, they were all held on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of terrorist acts.


Warrants of further detention were granted at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Saturday, allowing Scotland Yard to hold the suspects for further questioning until dates between 2 May and 4 May.
