Michael Adebowale, one of the two men arrested in connection with the murder of a soldier in Woolwich last week, was on Thursday charged with offences under the terrorism Act while a second suspect Michael Adebolajo remained in hospital.

Both were filmed brandishing blood-soaked knives and demanding the return of troops from “Muslim’’ countries after allegedly killing the soldier Lee Rigby . Adebowale (22), in hospital after being shot by the police, appeared in court with a bandaged right hand and limped badly as he approached the dock.
