article imageLee Rigby murder: Police make 10th arrest

By Layne Weiss     May 27, 2013 in World
London - A 10th person, a man, aged 50, has been arrested in connection with the murder of soldier Lee Rigby. He was arrested on Upper Wickham Lane in Welling, south-east London on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.
Police also confirmed a location in south-east London was being searched, BBC News reports.
A 22-year-old man arrested Sunday in Highbury, north London in connection with Lee Rigby's murder has been bailed out by police, Scotland Yard said.
Four of those arrested have been bailed out. Two have been released without charges and four remain in custody over the incident in which Lee Rigby was hacked to death last Wednesday.
Two suspects, Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Adebowale, 22, remain in custody and are said to be in stable condition after being shot by police at the scene of the murder, BBC News reports.
Questions are still being raised about what British authorities knew about the suspects before Rigby's murder.
On Sunday, the Foreign Office confirmed it had given consular assistance to Mr. Adebolajo, one of the suspects, after he was arrested in Kenya in 2010.
Kenyan government spokesman Muthui Kariuki told BBC News they feared Mr. Adebolajo was training to fight for Al-Shabaab and was handed over to "British security officers."
