One of two men charged with murdering a British soldier on a busy London street appeared in court for the first time on Monday, blowing kisses to a supporter in the public gallery and clutching a quran. Michael Adebolajo, 28, was remanded in custody until a hearing to decide whether he can be released on bail.
REUTERS Adebolajo, who was shot by police along with another man at the scene of the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby, appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court with his left arm wrapped in bandages. Flanked by three guards behind glass panels in the dock, Adebolajo asked to be identified by a different name, Mujahid Abu Hamza. His defense lawyer David Gottlieb (of course, a JEWISH loiyah) and Deputy chief magistrate Emma Arbuthnot referred to him as Abu Hamza during the hearing.
