BRITAIN STUNNED BY BRUTAL ACT OF TERRORISM
Soldier killed by two men with knives on London street in broad daylight

May 23, 2013




One of the suspects, hand still bloody and a holding a knife and cleaaver, explains to bystanders why he killed a solider on a London street.
(LONDON) -- It was a horrific site for onlookers and a act of terrorism that has schocked the world. Two men, without provocation, hacked a soldier to death on a London street Wednesday with knives and a meat cleaver and then remained on the scene explaining to bystanders, with their hands still bloody and holding the knives why they did it and why more killings would follow.

British authorities have since discovered that one and possibly both of the men who killed the soldier was born in Britain of Nigerian descent. That man was identified as 28-year-old Michael Adebolajo.

Police raided the home of his Nigerian family in a village near the eastern English city of Lincoln. British media reports said both men appeared to have converted to Islam from Christian immigrant backgrounds.

Both of the suspects in the attack, which happened in broad daylight on Wednesday afternoon, are in custody after being shot by police.

Prime Minister David Cameron held an emergency meeting of his intelligence chiefs to discuss what he called a "terrorist" attack, the first deadly strike in mainland Britain since local Islamists killed dozens in London in 2005.

"We will never give in to terror or terrorism in any of its forms," Cameron said outside his Downing Street office.

"This was not just an attack on Britain and on the British way of life, it was also a betrayal of Islam and of the Muslim communities who give so much to our country. There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act."

Authorities say the two young men used a car to run down the as yet unidentified soldier near Woolwich Barracks in southeast London on Wednesday afternoon and attempted to behead him with a meat cleaver and knives, witnesses said, before telling shocked bystanders they acted in revenge for British wars in Muslim countries.

A dramatic clip filmed (below) by an onlooker showed one of the men, in his 20s, his hands covered in blood and speaking in a local accent apologizing for taking his action in front of women but justifying it on religious grounds:

"We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you. The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day," he said. "This British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."



The attack, just a month after the bomb attacks on the Boston Marathon, revived fears of what are called lone wolf attacks.

These are attacks that may have no direct contact with al Qaeda but are inspired by radical preachers and by Islamist militant Web sites, some of which urge people to attack Western targets with whatever means they have.

Images of the blood-soaked suspect, who urged Britons to overthrow their government or risk having their children face a fate similar to the dead soldier, were splashed across the front pages of newspapers.
