Lee Rigby jury shown Adebolajo 'eye for eye' video

Mobile phone footage of Michael Adebolajo explaining why he killed soldier Lee Rigby has been seen by the jury in his trial at the Old Bailey.

The footage showed Mr Adebolajo, 28, saying: "The only reason we have killed this man today is because Muslims are dying daily by British soldiers."

In the video, he adds: "It's an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth."

Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Adebowale, 22, deny the murder in Woolwich, south-east London, on 22 May.
