New York: An American woman, Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, arrested for allegedly plotting to kill Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks for his derogatory depection of Prophet Mohammed, was released from custody in Ireland.

The Irish police have arrested seven people in this connection out of which three are Algerians, while one each from Libya, Palestine, Croatia and the US. Four of them have been reportedly released from custody.

The cartoon which depicts the head of Prophet Mohammed on a dog's body and has angered Muslims around the globe. An al Qaeda group in Iraq has placed USD 100,000 bounty on Vilks' head.

Three other suspects including Ramirez's husband, an Algerian, and another woman Colleen Larose, who uses online name 'Jihad Jane' are still in custody for the same case, according to ABC news.

Authorities have said Ramirez's trip to Ireland may have been motivated by love for the Algerian Muslim man she married rather than terror ambitions.

Ramirez, a former nursing student, moved to Ireland in October along with her a six-year-old son who is in state custody.

The New York Post reported that her family which hails from Colarado in the US revealed that Ramirez had been radicalising the toddler as well.
