Lee Rigby report: Killer 'expressed intent to murder a soldier'
The murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby could not have been prevented despite his killers appearing in seven intelligence investigations, a report has found.
Although the parliamentary inquiry found errors in the operations, they were not "significant enough to have made a difference".
Committee chairman Sir Malcolm Rifkind highlighted one online exchange from December 2012 where Michael Adebowale expressed his intent to murder a soldier in a "graphic and emotive" manner.
Michael Adebolajo was sentenced in February to a whole-life term and Michael Adebowale was jailed for a minimum of 45 years for the killing.
