Two Islamists Plead 'Not Guilty' to Charges of Butchering UK Soldier

The two suspects accused of hacking British solider Lee Rigby to death on a London street pleaded "not guilty" in court on September 27.

According to Fox News, suspects Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale denied "running Rigby over with a car [on May 22] and... stabbing him repeatedly in broad daylight." 

The suspects also plead "not guilty" to charges of attempting to kill one police officer and plotting to kill another. 

Both suspects entered their pleas via a video link into the courtroom. While on video, Adebolajo asked to be called Mujaahid Abu Hamza, and Adebowale asked to be called Ismail Ibn Abdullah. 

Adebolajo and Adebowaled reportedly "filmed a video boasting of the killing moments after Rigby died."

Their case goes to trial in November.
