Seven of the 11 people arrested in connection with the Westminster terror attack have been released, Metropolitan Police said on Friday.
Two men — a 58-year-old man and a 27-year-old man, both from Birmingham — still remain in police custody.
Police raided addresses across the country earlier this week — including in London, Manchester and Birmingham — as they looked to establish whether Westminster attacker Khalid Masood acted alone or with accomplices.
The attack on Wednesday killed four people and injured 50 as Masood drove a car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, before stabbing a police officer — PC Keith Palmer — who died from his injuries. Two people are currently in a critical condition — one with life-threatening injuries — in hospital.
Masood was shot dead by police on the scene on Wednesday.
Of those arrested:
- A 39-year-old woman arrested at an address in east London on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts has been released on bail until a date in late March
- A 32-year-old woman arrested in Manchester was bailed pending further enquiries until a date in late March.
- A 35-year old man arrested in Manchester was released with no further police action.
- A 21-year-old woman arrested at an address in Birmingham was released with no further action.
- A 23-year-old man arrested in Birmingham at the same address was released with no further action.
- A 26-year-old woman and three men aged 28, 27, and 26-years-old who were arrested at separate addresses in Birmingham were also all released with no further action.
