BREAKING NEWS - Four men arrested under terrorism laws after a bomb exploded outside Liverpool Women's Hospital on Remembrance Sunday have been released without charge. It comes after police named Emad Al Swealmeen as the man who died when a homemade device blew up in the back of a taxi shortly before 11.00 GMT. It is understood the 32-year-old suspect was an asylum seeker who converted to Christianity in 2017. Police say "important evidence" has been found at an address he rented. In an update on Monday evening, Assistant Chief Constable Russ Jackson, head of Counter Terrorism Policing North West, said the property at Rutland Avenue near Sefton Park, in the south east of the city, was "becoming central to the investigation". This was the address where Al Swealmeen was picked up by the taxi before being driven to the maternity hospital. The taxi's driver, David Perry, escaped before his car caught fire and has since been discharged from hospital. ACC Jackson said: "We have made significant progress since Sunday morning and have a much greater understanding of the component parts of the device, how they were obtained and how the parts are likely to have been assembled." But he said it could take weeks to establish how the incident was planned and prepared.
