Two men arrested in a London anti-terror raid last week in which one of the suspects was shot and wounded were released without charge Friday, police said. Police had said they launched the June 2 raid, whose violence outraged many British Muslims, because of intelligence suggesting there was a risk that one of the men had built an explosive device that could release a toxic chemical gas. Officers stormed into a row house in east London, shooting a 23-year-old man in circumstances that remain unclear and then arresting him and his 20-year-old brother. London's Metropolitan Police said both suspects were freed Friday evening. Police, who did not publicly identify the men, said in a statement that detectives were still developing the intelligence they had received and would "continue to exhaust all lines of inquiry."
