Police release from custody 2 suspects in arson attack against German paper

Police released two suspects detained after Sunday's arson attack against a German newspaper that printed cartoons from the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, AFP reported on Monday.
The two suspects, men in their 30s, were arrested in the city of Hamburg for behaving suspiciously near the scene of the attack at the Hamburger Morgenpost offices.
There was not enough evidence to keep the two in custody, police said, adding that the men denied any connection to the incident while being questioned by German authorities.
The probe into the firebombing of the local paper is still ongoing, police reassured, as are efforts to decipher whether the attack was linked to the reprinting of the controversial cartoons.
