A Jury of eight men and four women has found Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale guilty of the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby in Woolwich last May.
They were however, found not guilty of attempting to murder a police-officer at the scene of the incident.
The two men attacked and killed a serving British soldier who was in between tours as he returned to his barracks on 22nd May 2013.
Eye-witnesses gave account of how the two British men used a car to knock down the soldier, who was in civilian clothes, before dragging him back on the road where they attacked him while he lay unconscious.
One of them reportedly attempted to hack off his head with a meat cleaver while the other repeatedly stabbed the slain soldier in broad daylight.
Armed police officer arrived at the scene minutes after the incidents and Michael Adebolajo was said to have rushed at one of the police officers with the meat cleaver raised above his head but he was shot in the shoulder and eventually overpowered.
Both men were arrested at the scene and detained.
According to reports it took the Jury about 90-minutes to come out with a guilty verdict.
Before the Jury began their deliberation, the presiding judge, Mr. Justice Sweeney had directed the jury that Adebolajo’s evidence that the two accused persons were “soldiers of Allah” did not amount to a valid legal defence.
Mr Justice Sweeney said he will pass sentence after a key appeal court ruling on the use of whole life terms in January.
