Officers investigating the death of Syrian preacher Abdul Hadi Arwani are carrying out a search of an address in Wembley.
Police have confirmed they are searching a property in Monks Park today following the arrest of a 53-year-old woman in Brent on suspicion of terrorism offences and the further arrest on suspicion of terrorism offences of a 61-year-old man also being held on suspicion of conspiracy to murder Abdul Hadi Arwani.
The father-of-six, an outspoken critic of the Assad regime in Syria, was found shot dead in a car in The Greenhill, at the junction of The Paddocks, on April 7.
The woman, 53, was arrested yesterday evening on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of acts of terrorism. She remains in custody at a south London police station.
Detectives also continue to carry out searches of the An Noor Cultural and Community Centre in Acton, west London, which is the mosque where Mr Arwani previously served as imam from 2005-2011.
