22nd May 2013,  British Army soldier, 25-yeaar-old Fusilier Lee Rigby of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, was off duty, he was walking along Wellington street near to the Woolwich barracks when Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, ran at him with a car, knocking him down. They then got out of the car and viciously attacked him with knives and a meat cleaver, they attempted to behead him.
They then dragged him into the middle of the road, staying with the dead soldier until police arrived. They told horrified passers-by that they had killed a British soldier as revenge for the killing of Muslims by British soldiers.
A passer-by recorded a video where one of the attackers had said:-
"The only reason we have killed this man today is because Muslims are dying daily by British soldiers. And this British soldier is one.... By Allah, we swear by the almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone. So what if we want to live by the Sharia in Muslim lands? Why does that mean you must follow us and chase us and call us extremists and kill us?...when you drop a bomb do you think it hits one person? Or rather your bomb wipes out a whole family? ...Through many passages in the Koran we must fight them as they fight us...I apologise that women had to witness this today but in our lands women have to see the same. You people will never be safe. Remove your governments, they don’t care about you. You think David Cameron is gonna get caught in the street when we start busting our guns? Do you think politicians are going to die? No, it's going to be the average guy, like you and your children. So get rid of them. Tell them to bring our troops back...leave our lands and you will live in peace".
Police arrived and set up a cordon, when an armed response unit arrived the men charged at police, who fired shots at both men injuring them, they were then taken to hospital under police guard, later transfered into police custody.
