The soldier killed in Wednesday's attack has been identified by the British Ministry of Defense as Drummer Lee Rigby, 25, of the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. A native of Crumpsall, Manchester, Rigby served as a drummer during the regiment's ceremonial duties and deployed to Helmand province in Afghanistan in April 2009. Described as a charismatic, humorous man, Rigby -- or "Riggers" as he was known to his friends -- had taken up a recruiting job at his London base.
"Riggers is what every battalion needs. He was one of the Battalion's great characters always smiling and always ready to brighten the mood with his fellow Fusiliers," said Ned Miller, a warrant officer first class and regimental sergeant major of the second fusiliers. "He was an excellent drummer and well respected within the Drums platoon. He was easily identified whilst on parade by the huge smile on his face and how proud he was to be a member of the Drums. He would always stop for a chat just to tell me Manchester United would win the league again."
Rigby is survived by his two-year-old son, Jack.
Statement from his family:
"Lee was lovely. He would do anything for anybody, he always looked after his sisters and always protected them. He took a big brother role with everyone.
All he wanted to do from when he was a little boy, was be in the Army. He wanted to live life and enjoy himself. His family meant everything to him. He was a loving son, husband, father, brother, and uncle, and a friend to many.
We ask that our privacy be respected at this difficult time.
LONDON - British police arrested two more people on Thursday in a hunt for accomplices of two British men of Nigerian descent accused of hacking a soldier to death on a London street in revenge for wars in Muslim countries.
The two suspected killers, now under guard in hospitals, had been known to security services before Wednesday's daylight attack, security sources said. Another man and a woman, both aged 29, were detained on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.
One of the assailants, filmed calmly justifying the killing as he stood by the body holding a knife and meat cleaver in bloodied hands, was named by acquaintances as 28-year-old Londoner Michael Adebolajo - a British-born convert to Islam.
Like American infidel soldiers, I thought British soldiers were protecting Muslims by fighting the Taliban. How could I get it so wrong?!
British troops terrorizing Afghan nationals by giving them Eid gifts:
ANSF and ISAF soldiers helped local people celebrate Eid by distributing gifts throughout the Nahr-e-Saraj (South) district. Rice and vegetable oil has been handed out to adults and winter clothing, wellington boots, toys and stationary given to children over the period.
The gifts were gratefully received by local nationals who have continued to demonstrate their faith in the Afghan National Security Forces and the international troops supporting them, by participating in shuras and other community activities over this festive period. The British presence in the area is represented by 2nd Battalion The Parachute Regiment (2 PARA).
PAIND KALAY is one of the protected communities in the district, with a population of over 3,000 local nationals. One checkpoint witnessed over 45 children running to receive gifts with a smile and meet the Afghan and British soldiers at a checkpoint. Troops believe this is a demonstration of the increased security in the area and the positive impact that the patrol bases and checkpoints are having to protect communities.
Sergeant Terry McCourt said:
Six months ago this would not have been happening. This is a sign of good relations with the children and they feel safe here. Its all a mark of good progress.
The gift distribution has also further empowered local leaders who continue to demonstrate successful local governance across the district, preventing the return of insurgents.
Officer Commanding Information Operations, Major Justin Tancrel, said:
2 PARA Battle Group delivered Eid gifts to all Village Councils in Nahr-e-Saraj to enable elders to hand out those gifts to the poorest sections of the community.
Maybe Adebolajo misinterpreted Eid gifts as acronym for "Explosive Improvised Device"?!
Tractors handed out to Afghan farmers in Nad-e-Ali:
Soldiers from the 1st Battalion The Duke of Lancasters Regiment, working with the International Relief and Development Agency and the Afghan Government, have handed out 20 new tractors to farming co-operatives in the Nad-e-Ali region of Helmand Province.
Wow...handing out 20 new tractors to farmers. That's one way to brutalize them Muslims.
And how about Taliban treatment of Muslims?
Suicide Bomb Kills Anti-Taliban Elder
Taliban kill head of Afghan girls' school (Was he Muslim?)
Slaying of Teachers in Afghanistan Follows New Rules From Taliban (Muslims, right?)
Taliban publicly execute woman (She's Muslim, right?)

I served with this Battalion and know many many guys who are still there with them and I;m on the internet with them .
After talking to a lot of them over the last few days then they are B/S over what happened and lets not forget many have just got back from Afghanistan
Handing out candy on EID is a good example of thinking Western in the East. On Christmas we give Gifts, on EID the Muslims celebrate the death of the infidels in the Muslim version of the last days. They cut up goats and hang the body parts out to rot around the home for ten days to simulate the smell of death and rotting infidels.
Silly thing to hand candy out for, might as well wear a stab me sign on your back.
we don’t hear this in the Hindu, Jewish etc communities so why is it in the muslim community around the west,..
Not just England but all over the west?
Elected officials have got to do something about this and quick because more and more people are dying and will die regardless of some who refuse to bury their head where the sun does not shine
Victims of the Taliban by day and Taliban at night!
Sarc on! I can’t believe how cruel those Brit bastards are mistreating those Afghanis. How shameful of them. What a disgrace to so blatantly ridicule and assault those innocents. Sarc off!
R.I.P. Lee Rigby. Condolences to your family. Condolences to your friends.
When I saw the picture of that black savage with his hands full of blood I thanked God I have guns and live in a country that allows me to have them..I do have a permit to carry and I would have shot ever one of those black bastards..Folks we need to make sure we keep our rights..
What isn’t radical about Islam?
“The three digits 969 originally refer to the Buddhas three jewels , but they are now being used as a brand name for a nationalist, anti-Muslim campaign led by a prominent monk based in Mandalay.”
Forgot title of article:
969: The three digits that are terrifying Muslims in Burma
(I say we print up T-shirts.)
Not sure the black part mattered. Muzzies come in all colors, shapes and sizes. Don't let the packaging fool you. The Boston Speed bump and his little bro were white.
