Woman in a burka is carried out on a stretcher after she was shot during terror raid on house occupied by ‘Somalian family’ that ‘foiled active terror plot’

Police say an ‘active terror plot’ was foiled when they shot a 20-year-old woman in the arm and stomach before she was carried out on a stretcher still wearing her burka.

Dramatic video footage shows the moment elite Met officers smashed their way into the terraced house in Willesden, north London at about 7pm last night.

Armed officers forced open the door, ran up to the first floor flat belonging to a Somalian family and then threw in CS canisters before ‘at least six’ shots rang out including two that shattered an upstairs window.

  • If she didn’t want medical help, perhaps she should have been obliged.

      Which perhaps will be a future point of debate amongst the ruling establishment: should a male first-responder touch a burka-clad woman if she refuses help from a man? The chattering classes will be discussing this quandary in the future, perhaps when op-eds appear on the CBC News and Globe and Mail web pages. Oh yes, sarc off.

      Its humane to put wounded animals down with a round to the head. They should have finished her off.

    The very moment I read “Somalian” I had no further curiosity…..the details always fit the template.

    They should have shot them all.

      No, animals are better than they are…

    If they were really “elite” forces they would have put two rounds center mass and she would be dead.

    I hope they threw in a stink bomb for good measure.
