British anti-terrorism police investigating Wednesday Afternoon’s terror attack in London have detained a 39-year-old Gambian woman.
Rohey Hydara, who was married to, Khalid Masood, the man who carried out deadly terror attack outside Westminster, was arrested in an anti-terror raid on Wednesday night.
She was arrested at her flat in the heart of the Olympic Village, London, where she had previously lived with Masood.
Two other women and five men were arrested in London and Birmingham on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts following Wednesday’s attack
The flat is currently being searched by investigators trying to piece together more information about the attack which killed five people including PC Keith Palmer, 48, Aysha Frade and US tourist Kurt Cochran, 54, a 75-year-old man. About 40 people were also injured while seven are reported to be in critical condition in hospital.
Ms Hydara had lived with Masood in at least two separate addresses but it was unclear what their relationship was at the time of the incident.
Masood, 52, was born as Adrian Elms in Kent and was shot dead by police. He had not been the subject of any current police investigations.
The so-called Islamic State group has said it was behind the attack.
