Three further arrests have been made in connection with the murder of off-duty soldier Lee Rigby, police have said.
The Met said counter terrorism officers arrested three men, aged 21, 24 and 28, on Saturday evening on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder – a Taser was used on two of them.
Drummer Rigby was run over and then attacked in Woolwich on Wednesday.
Two men arrested on suspicion of murder at the scene remain in custody in hospital in a stable condition.
Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Adebowale, 22, were shot and wounded by police.
A 29-year-old man, arrested on Thursday on suspicion of conspiracy to murder, has been bailed to return pending further inquiries. Two women, aged 29 and 31, also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder on Thursday, were released without charge on Friday.
France has begun a key stage of its military withdrawal from Mali, four months after sending troops to push Islamist rebels out from the north.
A convoy of dozens of lorries left a base outside the capital, Bamako, on its way south to Ivory Coast.
France began withdrawing some of its 4,000 troops from the country in April.
They plan to gradually hand over to the Malian army and a UN peacekeeping force, which will deploy in July ahead of planned nationwide elections.
Saturday’s withdrawal comes just two days after Islamist rebels targeted an army barracks and French-run uranium mine in neighbouring Niger, killing 21 people. French special forces helped Nigerien soldiers end a hostage siege at the barracks on Friday.
It is not known if the attacks will affect French troop deployments.
