Woolwich Murder: 'Offensive' Tweets Arrests

Two men have been arrested for making alleged offensive comments on a social networking website about the killing of a serving British soldier in London.

Drummer Lee Rigby, 25, was brutally murdered in an attack on a street in Woolwich on Wednesday as members of the public watched in horror.

The father-of-one, of the 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, had fought in Afghanistan.

Avon and Somerset Police received complaints about remarks that appeared on Twitter, which were of a racist or anti-religious nature.
