LONDON (AFP) - London police on Wednesday charged a woman with attempted murder following terror raids on three properties that also led to the arrest of the teenage son of a senior British diplomat.

Police said they would take no further action against the 19-year-old, but that 36-year-old Kuntal Patel, also arrested in the Counter-Terrorism Command raids, had been charged.

She will appear at London's Westminster Magistrates' Court on Thursday, police said in a statement.

The Daily Telegraph reported that the released teenager was the son of Nicholas Sutcliffe, a first secretary - typically the third rung below an ambassador and the deputy head of mission in an embassy.
