UPDATE:

Michael Adeboloja, 28, was born in Lambeth, south London, in 1985 to a Christian family of Nigerian descent.

At the age of 15 or 16 he started getting involved in Islam and started to speak about Jihadi ideas.

He joined several extremist groups – including Al Muhajiroun – that were banned in Britain and in 2003 converted to Islam, calling himself Mujaheed while at Marshalls Park School.

Fearing he had become radicalised, his parents moved him away from Romford to a village in Lincolnshire.

A former friend told the Evening Standard that he was a Christian.

The friend said: ‘He started getting involved with Islam aged about 15 or 16, and that is why his parents moved him away out of the area. It is utterly shocking to see what he has done. It’s unbelievable.’

The security services, including MI5, were aware of him and his accomplice, who has not been named but is believed to be from Harold Hill, close to Romford.

Hmm, what would Barry call this?   (I think it is a terrorist attack, but I could be wrong.)   An international work place incident?

Local MP Nick Raynsford said he had been told the man attacked in the street was a soldier serving at the Royal Artillery Barracks near the attack.

Mr Raynsford said the soldier had been returning to the barracks after a day out when he was attacked.

London Ambulance Service said one man, believed to be the victim of the machete attack, had died in the incident and two others were injured, one seriously.

Several witnesses described seeing a “beheading” while another described seeing a man wearing a Help for Heroes T-shirt being attacked with a machete-style knife and dumped.

Oh yeah, the perps shouted their infamous phrase.

ITV News has posted a somewhat graphic image of the alleged attacker with his hands bloodied. “We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you,” he said.

Yup, that’s the asshole perp and his weapons.  It’s too bad that someone did not shoot that bastard.

The BBC reported sources had told them the men were shouting “Allahu Akbar” as they carried out the attack and had filmed carrying it out.

One witness, called James, told LBC radio: “We saw clearly two knives, meat cleavers, they were big kitchen knives like you would use in a butcher’s, they were hacking at this poor guy, we thought they were trying to remove organs from him”

“These two guys were crazed, they were not there, they were just animals. They then dragged him from the pavement and dumped his body in the middle of the road.

‘Soldier beheaded’ in ‘Islamist terror attack’ oustide barracks in Woolwich – Telegraph.   I guess the UK will have to rethink that tolerance thingy.

Homegrown?

The way things went.
