‘Woolwich attack highlights power of mobile technology as a news source’ | E. Bell

A man covered in the blood of his recent victim, still holding the weapons, explains to a passer-by with a camera phone the motives for his appalling attack. Peppered with political messages and carrying a clumsy apology to “women who had to see that”, the bloodied man is not enraged that his macabre and twisted actions have been filmed, he is gratified. This is a 21st century terrorist “press” conference, conducted on a pavement in Woolwich in the middle of a Wednesday afternoon.
