GUILDFORD, England, June 26 (UPI) -- A 54-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder in the French Alps has been released on bail, British police said.

Zaid al-Hilli was arrested Monday. Tuesday, he was released on bail until July 31, the Surrey police department said in a statement.

Police are investigating his potential role in the death of his brother, Saad al-Hilli, and three other people -- his sister-in-law, Iqba, her mother Suhaila al-Allaf, and French cyclist Sylvain Mollier, the BBC reported.

The victims were shot Sept. 5 while on vacation in the French Alps.

Investigators are investigating phone calls made to and from the suspect's home in the three-week period leading up to the vacation, the BBC said.

Zaid al-Hilli has denied fighting with his brother.
