A British soldier was murdered in a terror attack committed by two suspects who were subsequently injured during a police shooting in the Woolwich district in south-east London. Video footage from the incident site have been posted on Youtube and spread all over the media.
Media sources reported that the two suspects, who are allegedly Islamists, first hit the soldier -identified later as drummer Lee Rigby- with a car and then beheaded him with a cleaver and knife.
The gruesome event took place Wednesday afternoon in the Woolwich district, located in south-east London, and authorities called it a “terrorist incident”.
This incident is a “terrorist attack” said Prime Minister’s Office in a statement. David Cameron, who is currently in France, was “shocked” by the situation and called immediately the Emergency Governmental Commission Cobra.
The video below shows one of the killers who said a few words about the reason behind the bloody attack.
“We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone,” said a meat-cleaver-wielding man with bloody hands, speaking apparently with a London accent. “The only reasons we killed this man this is because Muslims are dying daily,” he added, in the footage broadcast by ITN. “This British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for tooth.”
“You people will never be safe,”. “Remove your government. They don’t care about you. You think David Cameron is going to get caught in the street when we start busting our guns?”… Get rid of them. Tell them to bring our troops back so we can all live in peace.”
