We reported on some of the gruesome details and testimony at the trial of the killers of British soldier Lee Rigby on a street in London by machete and knife wielding Islamic radicals, Killer of British soldier Lee Rigby: “I am a soldier and this is war”.
The evidence concluded last week, and this week the jury returned guilty verdicts. Via Fox News, 2 Muslim radicals — ‘soldiers of Allah’ — convicted in brutal murder of British soldier:
A jury on Thursday convicted two men who called themselves “soldiers of Allah” of murdering a British soldier who was run down with a car, stabbed to death and nearly decapitated in a brutal attack on a London street.
The jury of eight women and four men deliberated for just 90 minutes before finding Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale guilty of murdering Fusilier Lee Rigby. They were acquitted of attempting to murder a police officer.
Both men had pleaded not guilty to murder, though neither denied taking part in the May 22 attack.
Neither defendant reacted as the jury foreman announced the verdicts. Adebolajo smiled and kissed a copy of the Quran as he was led down to the cells.
Here is a video timeline of what happened that murderous day:
