Woman shot in Willesden terror raid arrested after being discharged from hospital

A woman shot in a police terror raid in London has been discharged from hospital and arrested under the Terrorism Act.

The woman was hit when armed officers entered a property in Harlesden Road, Willesden, on Thursday evening.

The 21-year-old, who was among a number of people under investigation, was wounded during the operation and taken to hospital.

No others were injured.

The woman was discharged from hospital on Sunday, but immediately held on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorist acts under section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000.

She has been taken to a police station in south London for questioning.

Six others were also previously arrested as part of the same investigation, including a 16-year-old boy.

One is also understood to be Mohamed Amoudi, 21, a Yemeni-born British citizen who studied physics at London's Queen Mary University.

Extensions have been granted to the period of time the suspects can be held, with all currently in custody in south London police stations.

Metropolitan Police said the address in Harlesden Road had been under surveillance by anti-terror officers for some time.

Two other properties in London have also been raided as part of the inquiry.

The Met Police's Directorate of Professional Standards is investigating the shooting.

The operation is not related to the separate arrest of a man near Downing Street on Thursday, who was stopped and allegedly found to be carrying knives in his rucksack.
