Two unnamed trainee doctors arrested at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley on July 1 in the wake of the attempted car bombs in London and Glasgow have been discharged without charge.
Both were trainee doctors, aged 25 and 28. The police have not released their names or nationality. The two are among three arrested persons who have now been discharged without charge.
Marwa, 27, the wife of another arrested, Mohammad Asha, has also been released without charge. Both were arrested on June 30. Asha is currently being held in London's high-security Paddington Green police station.
Two of the arrested who have so far been charged are Indian doctor Sabeel Ahmed and Iraqi doctor Bilal Talal Samad Abdullah. While Bilal Abdullah was charged with conspiracy to cause explosions, Sabeel is accused under the Terrorism Act, 2000, that he had information which he "knew or believed may be of material assistance in preventing the commission by another of an act of terrorism".
Sabeel is scheduled to appear at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court in London on Monday.
His brother, Kafeel Ahmed, 27, who was arrested after the attack at Glasgow's international airport, is still in hospital under police guard.
