The murderers are British-born. One gave an interview on video which is circulating the Internet. It is very graphic. One terrorist said it is retribution for soldiers killing people in the mid-East.

It is not yet known if they were lone wolves. Such terrorist attacks have been encouraged by al Qaeda.

The London mother, Ingrid Loyau-Kennett, who ran to the victim and who spoke with the murderers was interviewed by iTV.
