London police shoot one, arrest four in counter-terrorism operation | Reuters

British police said officers shot a woman and arrested four other people in London and nearby Kent during a counter-terrorism investigation on Thursday.

All four people were arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of terrorist acts, metropolitan police said in a statement, adding that the incident was not connected to the arrest in Whitehall, where a man carrying knives near Prime Minister Theresa May's office was arrested on suspicion of preparing an act of terrorism.

The woman who was shot is in serious but stable condition, police said. She has not been arrested yet and is under police guard at the hospital, according to the statement.

Police did not release the names of the five people, who the police said had been under observation by counter-terrorism officers as part of an ongoing intelligence led operation. (Reporting by Rama Venkat Raman in Bengaluru; Editing by Lisa Shumaker)
