Two men, who were arrested by Met Police as part of an investigation into Islamist-related terrorism, have been released on bail.

One man, 33, was held on suspicion of being a member of, or supporting, a banned organisation and of encouraging terrorism.

The second man, 42, was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

They have been bailed until January under conditions that "significantly restrict their activity and movement", a Metropolitan Police spokesman said.

Eight other men, aged between 22 and 51, were bailed earlier following a comprehensive counter-terrorism investigation by police into alleged support of the banned extremist group al-Muhajiroun.

Officers searched 18 residential, business and community addresses across London and another in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, seizing a "significant amount" of property, including computers.

Among the eight bailed was radical preacher Anjem Choudary, who told the Press Association his arrest was "politically motivated".
