Michael Adebolajo appears in court; wants to be called “Mujaheed Abu Hamza”

Dressed in all white with his left arm bandaged, Michael Adebolajo, who is accused of murdering Drummer Lee Rigby a fortnight ago, stood in the dock flanked by two police officers and a prison guard. As he arrived in the courtroom, he appeared to blow a kiss to a friend in the public gallery, gripped a copy of the Koran throughout and refused to stand in the dock.
