Britain should prosecute terrorist suspects, not play shady games of geopolitics

The initial reaction to the brutal killing of Lee Rigby, a 25-year-old off-duty British soldier, in Woolwich last week was to renew the debate over apparent "lone wolf" acts of terrorism.

Resident's view: Racial conflict has come to Woolwich for first time

Woolwich has been my home for six years. It has always felt safe. Even during the riots, I wandered down the High Street past smashed windows and looters in hoodies. Yes, it was unsettling; there was anger and frustration, but it was directed at property, and sometimes at police. It wasn't divided along racial or religious lines. It didn't make a dent in the community. Soon, the clean-up mission began, and people were talking on street corners about the minority who'd caused destruction in the place we all live. People were bonded by it.

The community: 'I don't feel safe staying out late'

Situated in one of the most ethnically diverse boroughs in the country, Woolwich is home to many people of African descent who fled their home countries for a more stable life in the UK.
