Skip to comments.Two more arrested as London terror probe expands
Posted on 05/23/2013 11:37:48 AM PDT by oxcart
British police have made two further arrests and searched multiple properties as they widened their investigation into Wednesday's fatal hacking to death of a British soldier in broad daylight on a busy London street by two Muslim terrorists.
The two arrests, of a man and a woman -- both 29 -- on suspicion of conspiracy to murder, raises the possibility that the gruesome attack was not a so-called "lone wolf" killing as once thought. Earlier it had been reported that the attackers were known to both UK authorities and a radical jihadist group well before the shocking attack that has stunned the United Kingdom and risked inflaming tensions between communities.
The two men, who were captured on cellphone video covered in blood and spouting jihadist rhetoric moments after the attack, have not yet been named, although Scotland Yard confirmed that they remained hospitalized in stable condition after being shot by armed police at the scene. But the killers, who wielded a machete and a cleaver and were dubbed "sickening individuals" by an incensed Prime Minister David Cameron, were already on the radar of security services, according to the BBC.
And Anjem Choudary, the leader of radical Islamist organization al-Muhajiroun -- a group banned under anti-terrorism laws in the UK -- has told Reuters that he knows one of the reported suspects. Michael Adebolajo, named by the BBC as one of the attackers, attended a number of the organization's demonstrations, lectures and activities according to Choudary, although he claimed not to have seen him for about two years.

Well, they’re on camera. Gotta love that!
“the shocking attack that has stunned the United Kingdom and risked inflaming tensions between communities”
Fry 'em in bacon grease!
It's just a phase of Jihad called Individual Jihad.
See lectures by Stephen Coughlin on youtube.
Can you believe the Gov is arresting Brittish Patriots who show up to
protest the beheading of the Brittish Army man
Oh. Really? What was your first clue?
Oh, well. Reality orientation. It's a start.
Was there a UK YouTube Video involved?
Will the Brits investigate the matter, make recommendations, and hope this doesn’t happen again in the future?
Rush said today that the British government has now told/ordered British military to not wear identifying garb outside their military bases. These Islamists have driven the British into their closets and taken away their security and freedom of movement. A very sad surrender to Islam.
A lone wolf here and a lone wolf there and eventually you have hundreds of thousands of lone wolves.
Such a meek military will be a burdensome ally.
Two more who have “self-radicalized”. Why? WHY?
Locked in a steel cage with a 500# Very hungry boar hog!
PIG $h=t tommorrow.
I believe the CATO Institute refers to such things as "an epidemic of isolated incidences."
The PM overruled the advice (not direct order) within hours.
LOL...I made that exact same observation on threads for both this, and the Boston Marathon attacks. You’d think with all the lone wolves out there, they wouldn’t be so lonely!
Firstly, it was advice, not an order.
Secondly, Cameron overruled it within hours.
Thirdly, that ally has been fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan and dying alongside you for 12 years. As well as nearly 100 years of alliedship in numerous wars. The boy murdered had served in the latter warzone. The one part of the UK that is not and will never be meek is the military.
