UK warns of 'increased level of terrorist activity'

London police arrested three women on Monday, charging them with terrorism-related offenses.

They are being questioned at a police station outside London.

She said she thought the police were coming through her door, and saw officers with "gas masks and snipers".

Officers said that the operation was not connected to an arrest near Parliament on Thursday, when a man was detained on suspicion of terror offences.

He didn't give details of how the woman was shot.

She said the woman was "screaming really loud" and described her neighbours as a "standard Muslim couple" of whom she "never suspected anything at all". I have never seen her before.

Separately police have also been given more time by the courts to question a terror suspect arrested on the same day in Whitehall.

The Mercedes driver handed Vettel an opportunity on lap 38 with a lock up at turn 13 that allowed the German to cut the gap. Two-time champion Fernando Alonso did not even start as the Spaniard abandoned his troublesome McLaren Honda.

One neighbour, who wished to remain anonymous, said he heard three gunshots and described seeing a "squad" of armed police descend on the street.

Monday's arrests come just over a month after a British-born convert to Islam ploughed a auto into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge. Police said they had disrupted an active terror plot, but did not elaborate.

Britain has been on its second-highest alert level - "severe" - since August 2014, meaning an attack by militants is considered highly likely.

Counterterrorism police say 13 potential attacks have been foiled in the last four years. Some claimed they heard police saying they believed she had explosives on her.

A man and a woman, both aged 28, were arrested when they returned to the house later. Another woman, aged 43, was arrested from a property in Kent.

Since the British government has enacted the Terrorism Act to give security forces sweeping powers to intrude and infiltrate any suspects data, 10 people have been arrested including the woman that has been shot.
