British police on Friday evening released two men in Bristol who had been arrested on terrorism suspicions, as a London court ruled that a fourth suspect accused in the foiled terror attacks in London and Glasgow is to remain in custody.

The release of the two came the same day the police disclosed that they had made the arrests on Wednesday after a house search for drugs had turned up substances which might be linked to terrorist activities.

But Friday evening, police said the two men - one of whom was of Afghan heritage - had been released as the suspicions could not be substantiated.

The development came as a London court ordered that Mohammed Asha, 26, who was charged on Thursday with conspiracy to cause explosions in the failed car bomb attacks in London and Glasgow, was to remain another week in custody until the next court date.

Four men have been charged in connection with the car bombs defused in central London on June 29 and the driving of a blazing Jeep into the terminal at Glasgow airport a day later. One man is still being questioned.
