Terror Raids: Woman On Attempted Murder Charge
A woman has been charged with attempted murder after a counter terror operation involving searches at three London addresses.
Kunta Patel, 36, from Stratford, east London, is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Thursday to face the charge, which follows an investigation by the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command.
A Scotland Yard team searched two properties in Wyatt Park Road in Streatham Hill, south London, on Saturday, as well as a third property where Ms Patel was arrested.
She was charged on Wednesday night after police were granted a custody extension by magistrates.
Ms Patel and a 19-year-old man were arrested under the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, which was part of the then-Labour government's response to the September 11 attacks in New York.
Many of the act's measures do not specifically relate to terrorism.
