Australian Muslim Says British Soldier Deserved Beheading
Muslim converts who hacked British soldier to death jailed for life
Two British Muslim converts were sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday for hacking a soldier to death on a London street in broad daylight, a gruesome killing that horrified the nation and provoked an anti-Islamic backlash.
Michael Adebolajo, 29, and Michael Adebowale, 22, were convicted by a jury in December of murdering off-duty soldier Lee Rigby, a 25-year-old Afghan war veteran in Woolwich, southeast London, in May last year.
Adebolajo received a whole-life term while Adebowale was told he would serve a minimum period of 45 years.
