Three men arrested in connection with the beheading of a British soldier here were Monday released on bail while the two main accused,shot by police,remain under arrest in a hospital.

The trio,aged 21,24 and 28,were arrested in southeast London on Saturday,three days after 25-year-old Lee Rigby was hit by a car and then attacked with a knife and a meat cleaver in Woolwich.

They have been bailed to return to a south London police station,the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

Michael Adebolajo,28,and Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale,22,arrested on suspicion of murder at the scene of the killing on Wednesday,remain under arrest.

Counter-terrorism officers are also continuing to question a 22-year-old man in Highbury Grove,north London,who was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

PM David Cameron,who is on a family holiday in Ibiza,has also said the parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee will carry out an investigation after it emerged that Adebolajo and Adebowale were known to MI5.
