The footage was shown in court during the trial of Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale who were found guilty of murdering Fusilier Lee Rigby. A jury on Thursday convicted two British men who considered themselves "soldiers of Allah" of murdering a serviceman who was run down with a car and stabbed to death in a frenzied attack on a London street. They were acquitted of attempting to murder a police officer. (AP Photo/Metropolitan Police)

    Two men have been found guilty in the May murder of 25-year-old British soldier Lee Rigby. The pair, Michael Adebolajo, 29, and Michael Adebowale, 22, killed Rigby—nearly beheading him in the middle of the street—the defense argued, because they believed they were fighting a holy war against Western aggression in Muslim countries. While announcing the verdict, the judge read witness accounts that the two men “looked pleased with what they had done." Protestors soon gathered outside the court to demand capital punishment, which British law does not allow.
