UK Police: 3 More Suspects Arrested in Woolwich Soldier Killing
Three more people were arrested Saturday in connection with last week’s grisly killing of British soldier Lee Rigby, police said.
The men were being held on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.
Police did not detail how they were allegedly tied to the killing, nor did they release their identities, saying only that the men — ages 21, 24 and 28 — were arrested by detectives from the Counter Terrorism Command and taken to a south London police station.
Police said a Taser was used on two of the men, who “did not require hospital treatment.”
Police also were carrying out search warrants at four residential addresses associated with the three men, the statement said.
