Police release former terror suspects without charge

Two of four men arrested in a counter-terrorism operation last weekend have now been released without charge, police said.

Scotland Yard said a 28-year-old British national of Azerbaijani origin arrested last Sunday on upmarket Westbourne Grove in west London had been released without charge.

Earlier, a spokesman confirmed a 29-year-old British national of Pakistani origin arrested in Peckham, south-east London, had also been freed.

Two 25-year-olds are still in custody following a swoop where marksmen used special ammunition to stop a car on Mansell Street, near the Tower of London.
