The 20-year-old Muslim woman shot by police as they foiled an ‘active terror plot' was taken away on a stretcher in her blood-soaked burka yelling: ‘Don't touch my body'.
The suspect screamed ‘get off – do not touch me' as they tried to strip off her clothes and treat her wounds after the raid in Willesden, north London, at 7pm last night.
Dramatic video footage shows the moment elite Met officers smashed through the door, ran up to the first floor flat and then threw in CS canisters before ‘at least six' shots rang out including two that shattered an upstairs window.
Neighbours heard a woman ‘screaming' inside before the young suspect lay on the pavement bleeding from her arm and stomach while still wearing her burka.
One said: ‘Doctors were trying to help her. She was shouting: “Do not touch me, do not touch my body”.'
Another witness who saw the raid's aftermath said: ‘They brought down a lady in a black burka. She had been shot the paramedics stripped off her clothing to get access to the wounded areas.'
The woman – believed to be the first female terror suspect in UK history to be shot by police – was rushed to hospital where she remains in a serious but stable condition and is too unwell to be arrested under the terrorism act.
