Terror officers granted more time to question three teenagers arrested in East London
Police have been granted more time to question three teenagers who were arrested in East London on suspicion of involvement in terrorism.
The two 18-year-olds and a woman aged 19 were held last week by officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command at three addresses.
They were being questioned as part of an ongoing intelligence-led operation last week in which a 21-year-old woman wanted for questioning on “suspicion of “reparation or instigation of acts of terrorism” was shot by police at an address in Willesden.
The injured woman was arrested following her discharge from hospital on Sunday
A 20-year-old woman was also arrested in Willesden and a woman, 45, was held in Kent.
Today Westminster Magistrates’ Court granted a warrant to hold all six women for up to seven more days.
Two men aged 21 and 28, and a 16-year-old boy who were arrested last week in Willesden have been released without charge.
