LONDON: British counter-terror police have shot a woman and arrested four people in raids in London and southeastern England.

The injured suspect has been hospitalized in serious condition after the raid in northwest London. She was shot after police entered a house in the Willesden neighborhood.

Police said Friday she was the subject of an ongoing investigation. She is under police guard but has not been arrested.

Two others were arrested at that address, as was a neighbor. A woman in Kent was also arrested.

Police say the four people are being held on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts.

A police statement says the overnight raids were not related to Thursday's incident near Parliament in which a man was arrested while allegedly carrying large knives in a backpack.
