    Willesden shooting: Police foil 'active terror plot

    9 minutes ago

    Police say they have foiled an active terror plot after a woman was shot during a raid on a house in Willesden, north-west London.
    The 21-year-old woman was one of the subjects of the investigation and is in a serious but stable condition.

    A raid also took place in Kent, with six people arrested in total.
    Officers say the operation was not connected to an arrest near Parliament on Thursday, when a man was detained on suspicion of terror offences.

    Police said the house in Harlesden Road, Willesden, which was raided on Thursday evening, had been under observation.
    At about 19:00 BST, firearms officers entered the property. CS gas was sprayed and a woman was shot.

    A 16-year-old boy, and a man and woman, both aged 20, were arrested. A 43-year-old woman was arrested in Kent.
    Two further arrests were made in Willesden after a man and woman, both aged 28, returned to the raided property.
    The police said the suspects had been arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of terrorist acts.
    They are in custody at a south London police station.

    Neil Basu, deputy assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said: "Due to these arrests that have been made yesterday, in both cases I believe that we have contained the threats that they pose."
    When asked by reporters whether police had foiled an active terror plot, Mr Basu replied: "Yes."
    He added: "There are constant acts of immense bravery by officers, armed and unarmed - those that the public see, where our officers run towards danger just as you saw yesterday, but a huge amount of unseen work that the public will never see behind the scenes."

    Police searches took place at the address of the shooting in Willesden
    Alex Paton, 50, who lives in Harlesden Road, said he saw a woman "getting all cuffed up and put in a white suit".
    He described seeing "coppers and masked men with guns".

    Another resident of the area said she had heard the "bang, bang, bang" of shots.
    A neighbour of the raided property suggested the shot woman had suffered injuries to her left arm and stomach.
    He said the family who lived there were from Somalia.

    Ruth Haile, who lives in the road, said she heard shots and the woman on the ground shouting: "Don't touch me, my body, don't touch my dress."

    Speaking about the shot woman, a police spokesman said: "Due to her condition, she has not been arrested at this time and remains under police guard at hospital.

    It is believed to be the first time a woman has been shot by police in 10 years. The last time was in 2007 when Ann Sanderson was fatally shot in Kent.

    Police said searches had taken place at "linked addresses", as well as where the arrests took place.

    A police cordon at Harlesden Road remained in place on Friday morning
    The Willesden raid has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission and the Met's directorate of professional standards, as is procedure.
    The IPCC said it was gathering evidence but that no officers were under investigation.

    On Thursday, police arrested a 27-year-old man at the junction of Parliament Street and Parliament Square, in London, as part of an intelligence-led operation.
    He was identified on Friday as Khalid Mohamed Omar Ali, a British national who is believed to have gone to school in Tottenham, north London, but was not born in the UK.

    The Met said he had been detained on suspicion of terrorism offences and that knives were recovered from the scene.
    He had been on the force's radar for some time and it is thought police acted after a concerned family member contacted them.

    Willesden terror raid: Three more women arrested

    Officers raided a house in north-west London on Thursday
    Three women have been arrested in connection with last week's anti-terror operation in London in which a woman was shot by police.
    The women, two aged 18 and one 19, were arrested on Monday on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of terrorist acts.
    It follows a counter-terror operation on Thursday in which a 21-year-old woman was shot at a house in Willesden.

    The three arrested women are in custody outside London, police said.
    They were arrested after counter-terrorism officers from the Metropolitan Police Force carried out warrants at three addresses in east London.
    The Met said the arrests were made as part of an ongoing intelligence-led operation in connection with an address on Harlesden Road, Willesden, which was raided on Thursday.

    The 21-year-old who was shot during the police operation was discharged from hospital on Sunday before being arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of terrorist acts.

    It is believed to be the first time a woman has been shot by police in 10 years. The last time was in 2007 when Ann Sanderson was fatally shot in Kent.
    A further six people were also arrested in connection with the incident, including five at or near the Willesden address, which had been under observation by police, and one in Kent.

    One of those arrested at the address was 21-year-old Mohamed Amoudi.
    It was revealed on Saturday that he had previously been quizzed by British authorities under suspicion of trying to travel to Syria to join so-called Islamic State.

    The other people taken into custody were a 20-year-old woman, a 16-year-old boy, and a man and woman both aged 28.
    Another woman, aged 43, was arrested from a property in Kent.
    Terror suspects can be held for a maximum of 14 days, with judicial approval.

    On Saturday Met Police were given court authorisation to detain the suspects at a south London police station until after the bank holiday weekend.
    Whitehall operation

    Separately, on Sunday police were given more time by the courts to question a terror suspect who was arrested in Whitehall - also on Thursday - in an unrelated intelligence-led counter-terrorism operation.
    Khalid Mohammed Omar Ali, 27, was arrested near Parliament Square, near the Houses of Parliament.
    The courts granted a warrant of further detention so police until Thursday.
