TERRORISTS GUILTY OF BEHEADING SOLDIER LEE RIGBY

WOOLWICH, GREENWICH, SOUTHEAST LONDON; ROMFORD, ESSEX; ROCHDALE, LANCS One of Lee Rigby's killers kissed the Koran as he was convicted of beheading the soldier in the street. Muslim converts Michael Adebolajo, who turned 29 today, and Michael Adebowale, 22, butchered the 25 year-old Fusilier to death 'like a piece of meat' in a bid to spark a wave of extremist violence across the country. Spotting Drummer Rigby walking towards Woolwich Barracks, they rammed their car into him from behind at 40mph before mutilating his body as he lay defenceless with a broken back. Adebolajo grinned as he was led to the cells and as the victim's family sobbed he held the holy book aloft and kissed it.

ADEBOLAJO: KILLER IS A GOOD MAN, SAYS SOBBING BARRISTER

WOOLWICH One of Lee Rigby's killers is 'honest, upright and honourable', an Old Bailey jury heard today (weds). Michael Adebolajo, 28, and his friend Michael Adebowale, 22, hacked the 25 year-old soldier to death after running him over near Woolwich Barracks in south London. Jurors have heard Adebolajo attempted to decapitate him with a meat cleaver before dragging his mutilated body in front of members of the public. David Gottlieb, defending Adebolajo, emotionally told the jury: 'Here is a man who killed a British soldier.' 'He is a British citizen and he has shown himself to be honest, upright and honourable. His voice cracked and he appeared to sob as he added: 'He is someone who is totally sincere, a man of absolute honesty and moral conviction.'

ADEBOLAJO: LEE RIGBY'S KILLERS HAVE NO DEFENCE

WOOLWICH Two Muslim men who hacked soldier Lee Rigby to death in the street have no defence to the charge of murder, the Old Bailey heard today (TUES). The judge, Mr Justice Sweeney, told jurors that nothing Michael Adebolajo, 28, said in evidence 'amounts in law to a defence to this count'. But defence counsel for both Adebolajo and Adebowale can argue that the prosecution have failed to prove any of the elements of murder, he added. Michael Adebolajo, 28, has told the court he loved Al Qaeda and wanted to change British foreign policy by killing the 25 year-old Fusilier. He added: 'I am a soldier. This is war.'

This afternoon, Abbas Lakha QC, representing Adebowale, told the court: 'I call no evidence on behalf of Mr Adebowale.'
