Woolwich Suspect Adebolajo Leaves Hospital

Suspected Woolwich attacker Michael Adebolajo has left hospital and is being questioned by police over the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby.
The 28-year-old had already been arrested on suspicion of the solder's murder, but he has been further arrested on suspicion of the attempted murder of a police officer.
Adebolajo has been taken from hospital to a south London police station.
"He remains in custody and will be interviewed by detectives from the Metropolitan Police Service Counter Terrorism Command," a police statement said.
Michael Adebowale, 22, has already been charged with murdering the young soldier and is due to appear at the Old Bailey on Monday.
Drummer Rigby, 25, was hacked to death near Woolwich barracks in southeast London last week after he was hit by a car.
Adebowale and Adebolajo were both shot by armed response teams in Woolwich in the wake of the murder.
An inquest into Drummer Rigby's death opened earlier and heard that he was killed as he returned to his barracks after a day working at the Tower of London.
Rigby suffered "extensive and serious" injuries and had to be identified by a dental expert , the inquest also heard.
Several people have so far been held by detectives investigating the soldier's death, including a 42-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of being involved in the illegal supply of guns.
Adebolajo's relatives released a statement this week sending their "heartfelt condolence" to Drummer Rigby's family, saying there is no place for violence in the name of religion.
The Adebolajo family said: "Nothing we can say can undo the events of last week.
"However, as a family, we wish to share with others our horror at the senseless killing of Lee Rigby, and express our profound shame and distress that this has brought to our family."
Drummer Rigby's family have also released a statement  appealing for calm and an end to attacks in the wake of his death.
Since the killing there has been a significant increase in reports of attacks against Muslims and a number of arrests made over comments posted on social networking sites.
And the Queen visited the barracks at Woolwich where she met personnel who coordinated the response of the Royal Artillery Barracks to the soldier's murder.
Religious leaders from a variety of faiths also gathered to lay a floral tribute at the barracks.
Representatives of Christian, Muslim, Sikh and Jewish communities placed flowers arranged to spell the word Peace amongst the thousands of bouquets, cards, poems and candles left in memory of Drummer Rigby.
