Two men aged 24 and 28 were arrested at a residential address in London while a 21-year-old man was held in the street, Scotland Yard said. The third man was arrested in the street.

Home Secretary Theresa May has revealed that counter-terrorism officers from around the country have been brought in to boost the total number of police working on the investigation to 500.

the two men suspected of murdering Drummer Lee Rigby, identified as Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale, 22, were known to MI5.

Adebowale and Adebolajo remain in a stable condition in hospital after being shot by police when they charged towards armed officers in Woolwich on Wednesday.

Authorities in France are also investigating whether the murder of Drummer Rigby was linked to an attack on a French soldier, who was stabbed in the neck in a busy shopping area near Paris on Saturday.

 

 

The arrests came as Downing Street confirmed the launch of a new terror task force to crack down on extremism.

Two men, aged 24 and 28, were detained at an address in south-east London on Saturday, while a 21-year-old man was arrested in the street in Charlton Lane, Greenwich, all on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.

  2. CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

    Woolwich law enforcement LIED AND HAVE CREATED A SCENARIO BASED ON INCONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE.

    I SAW A VIDEO CLIP OF THE SHOOTING OF Michael Adebolajo AND Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale. IN THE CLIP, ONE OF THE SUSPECTS WAS RUNNING; IT COULD NOT BE DETERMINED FROM THE VIDEO IF HE WAS RUNNING TOWARD OR AWAY FROM POLICE. YET, JOURNALISTS SAY, “the suspects CHARGED at police.”

    THE “BOTTOM-LINE” IS A CAUCASIAN MALE IS DEAD AND TWO NEGRO MALES ARE IN THE HOSPITAL. AND, WHO LURKS IN THE SHADOWS? ….. dirty cops!!!!!
