From the Telegraph:
The family of Lee Rigby broke down today as two Islamist fanatics were found guilty of butchering the soldier on a London street.
A jury found Michael Adebolajo, 29, and Michael Adebowale, 22, guilty of murdering the 25-year-old after they ran him over and hacked him to death in broad daylight.
As they returned their verdicts after just 90 minutes deliberation, Drummer Rigby’s family, who have attended throughout the trial, wept.
In a statement as they left they said: “This has been the toughest time of our lives and no one should have to go through what we have been through as a family.
Mr Justice Sweeney expressed his “gratitude and admiration” to them as he acknowledged it was a case that will “stay with all of us for a long time”.
“They have sat in court with great dignity throughout what must have been the most harrowing of evidence,” the judge said.
It was described as one of the “most savage” cases ever prosecuted by counter terrorism lawyers.
As he was taken down to the cells Adebolajo kissed his Koran.
Mr Rigby was knocked unconscious by a car driven at him from behind as he crossed the road close to his barracks.
Adebolajo leapt from the vehicle and began hacking at his neck with a meat cleaver, virtually decapitating him, as Adebowale repeatedly stabbed him with a kitchen knife.
Adebolajo got one shocked bystander to record his sickening boasts on a mobile phone just seconds after killing the Fusilier, who was just yards from his barracks.
Adebolajo and Adebowale, who are both Muslim converts, then charged at armed police when they arrived at the scene of the bloodbath in Woolwich, south east London, on May 22.
Drummer Rigby’s mother, Lyn, said the killers should never be released while his stepfather Ian has suggested they should be treated the same way he was.
They will be sentenced on a date to be set.
