Officials reported that British police have arrested three women as part of a continuing counterterrorism investigation that included a raid last week.
Police said that three women were arrested Monday morning on suspicion of planning attacks. Two are 18 and one is 19. They are being questioned at a police station outside London. Their identity was not disclosed.
Police say the arrests are part of an ongoing intelligence-led operation related to a series of arrests that began Thursday when police stormed a house in northwest London. The forces arrested three people there. One woman who was shot during that raid was arrested after she was discharged from a hospital. Another woman was arrested in Kent in the same raid.
So far, a total of 10 people have been arrested as part of the investigation. None have yet been charged or identified.
