The Two Woolwich Gun Suspects Bailed By Police

Two men held on suspicion of being involved in the supply of guns in connection with the murder of Lee Rigby have been bailed.
They are due to return to a south London police station later this month.
It comes as one of the suspected killers of Drummer Rigby was questioned by police.

Michael Adebolajo, who was shot by police, was released from hospital on Friday and taken into custody.

The 28-year-old had already been arrested on suspicion of Drummer Rigby's murder, and on Friday he was further arrested on suspicion of the attempted murder of a police officer.

Michael Adebowale, 22, has already been charged with murdering the young soldier and is due to
appear at the Old Bailey on Monday.

Protest marches were due to take place around the country amid increased tensions following the 25-year-old soldier's violent death.
On Friday, his family stressed that the young soldier would not have wanted violent attacks to be carried out in his name, and urged protesters to remain peaceful.

In a statement released through the Ministry of Defence, members of Drummer Rigby's family including his Mother Lyn, Stepfather Ian, wife Rebecca and son Jack, said: "We would like to emphasize that Lee would not want people to use his name as an excuse to carry out attacks against others.
"We would not wish any other families to go through this harrowing experience and appeal to everyone to keep calm and show their respect in a peaceful manner."
