(Newser) – Australian police questioned five more foreign doctors and raided two hospitals in the ongoing probe into last week's car bomb attacks in London and Glasgow, authorities said yesterday. Four Indian physicians who had worked for the British health system were questioned in Perth and Kalgoorlie, and a fifth Indian doctor was reportedly interrogated in Sydney.

The men weren't suspected of belonging to a terror cell but were linked to people of interest in what has emerged as a plot driven by doctors, authorities said. Equipment seized from hospitals included computers and hard drives. Materials will take "a long time to work through, particularly if they are in a foreign language," said one investigator.
