London: All those arrested in connection with the brazen terror attack outside the British Parliament have been released with no further action, the Scotland Yard said soon after a 30-year-old suspect was freed on Saturday.
The last suspect in custody, arrested in Birmingham on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts, was released on Saturday.
"Eleven other people were previously arrested and released with no further action," the Metropolitan Police (Met) said.
"The inquests into the deaths of the victims of the Westminster terrorist attack opened and adjourned on March 29 under the authority of Senior Coroner for Westminster Fiona Wilcox. A provisional date for the pre-inquest review was set by the coroner as 19 May at the Royal Courts of Justice," the Met statement said.
The inquest into the death of Masood also opened and adjourned on Thursday, under the authority of Wilcox. A provisional date for the pre-inquest review was also set by the coroner as 19 May, at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.
The inquest earlier this week heard that Masood died at the scene from a single gunshot wound to the chest after he was shot by police.
Masood drove his rented SUV into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge on March 22 before crashing his car into railings and then running into the grounds of Parliament. Armed with a knife, he stabbed a police constable, before being shot dead by police.
In the attack, five people were killed and 50 were injured. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack.
