Two shot by police after soldier hacked to death on street near Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, London — www.couriermail.com.au (23/5/2013)
An off-duty British soldier, Drummer Lee Rigby, 25, of 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, was hacked to death in south east of the city metres away from his barracks by two men with meat cleavers ranting "we swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you".
In extraordinary broad daylight scenes in Woolwich, in southeast London, the men ran the man down in a car then tried to hack the man's head off and have their own crime filmed. British media say the victim was wearing a shirt in support of troops when he was killed.
The two men then waited 20 minutes for police to turn up before charging at them with meat cleavers, knives and a hand gun.
