The Jihadist in London who was seen with bloodied hands and a meat cleaver a short distance from where a British soldier named Lee Rigby was beheaded in the street, appears to be one of three lone wolves. Here is raw footage of the Jihadist:
More information about the number of arrests via Fox News:
British police have made two further arrests and searched multiple properties as they widened their investigation into Wednesday’s fatal hacking to death of a British soldier in broad daylight on a busy London street by two Muslim terrorists.
The two arrests, of a man and a woman — both 29 — on suspicion of conspiracy to murder, raises the possibility that the gruesome attack was not a so-called “lone wolf” killing as once thought. Earlier it had been reported that the attackers were known to UK authorities and one had ties to a radical jihadist group well before the shocking attack that has stunned the United Kingdom and risked inflaming tensions between communities.
The two men, who were captured on cellphone video covered in blood and spouting jihadist rhetoric moments after the attack, have not yet been named, although Scotland Yard confirmed that they remained hospitalized in stable condition after being shot by armed police at the scene. But the killers, who wielded a machete and a cleaver and were dubbed “sickening individuals” by an incensed Prime Minister David Cameron, were already on the radar of security services, according to the BBC.
We also have information that one of the three suspects is a follower of Anjem Choudary, a Salafist who is perhaps the best known Islamic scholar in Great Britain.
And Anjem Choudary, the leader of radical Islamist organization al-Muhajiroun — a group banned under anti-terrorism laws in the UK — has told Reuters that he knows one of the reported suspects. Michael Adebolajo, a Muslim convert from Christianity named by the BBC as one of the attackers, attended a number of the organization’s demonstrations, lectures and activities according to Choudary, although he claimed not to have seen him for about two years.
Here is Choudary from a few years ago. Note how CNN’s Eliot Spitzer and Kathleen Parker are even taken aback. Note, beginning at the 2:30 mark, Choudary admits that he is in contact with people in the U.S. to encourage them commit terrorist attacks:
