Parliamentary report, which is set to clear security services of major errors, comes under attack
The official inquiry into the jihadi-inspired murder of Lee Rigby in 2013 is poised to clear the security services of major criticisms but is facing claims that it failed to speak to witnesses who say the plot’s leader was repeatedly contacted by the security services before the attack.
The report by parliament’s intelligence and security committee (ISC), due out on Tuesday, will set out what the intelligence services knew before the attack. Fusilier Rigby, 25, was run over and then butchered by Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale in May 2013 on a street in Woolwich, south-east London, in front of numerous witnesses. Both were sentenced in February to life imprisonment for the soldier’s murder, with Adebolajo, the dominant of the pair, told he would never be released.

Officials say al-Shabaab militants from Somalia hijacked bus in north of country and killed 28 non-Muslims on board
Al-Shabaab militants from Somalia hijacked a bus in Kenya’s north and killed 28 non-Muslims on board after they had been separated out from the rest of the passengers, police officials said Saturday.
Two police officers said that the bus travelling to the capital Nairobi with 60 passengers was hijacked 31 miles from the town Mandera near Kenya’s border with Somalia. The officers insisted on anonymity out of fear of reprisals because of an order from Kenya’s police chief that officers should not speak to the media.
