On the afternoon of 22 May 2013, a British Army soldier, Fusilier Drummer Lee Rigby of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, was attacked and killed by Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale near the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, southeast London..Lee was off duty and walking along Wellington Street when he was attacked..2 men ran him down with a car, then used knives and a cleaver to stab and hack him to death.. The men dragged Rigby's body into the road and remained at the scene until police arrived.. They told passers-by that they had killed a soldier to avenge the killing of Muslims by the British armed forces.. Unarmed police arrived at the scene nine minutes after an emergency call was received and set up a cordon. Armed police officers arrived 5 minutes later.. The assailants, armed with a gun and cleaver, charged at the police, who fired shots that wounded them both. They were apprehended and taken to separate hospitals.. Both are British of Nigerian descent, raised as Christians, who converted to Islam....The soldier killed in the attack was 25-year-old Lee Rigby, a drummer and machine-gunner in the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. Rigby, from Middleton, Greater Manchester, had served in Cyprus, Germany, and Afghanistan before becoming a recruiter and assisting with duties in the Tower of London..The attack took place shortly before 14:20 in Wellington Street, and near its junction with John Wilson Street, part of the South Circular Road (A205) in Woolwich, near the perimeter of the Royal Artillery Barracks where Rigby was stationed.. Rigby had arrived at Woolwich Arsenal station at 14:10 and was walking down Wellington Street towards the Barracks..Adebolajo also gave a bystander at the scene a handwritten two page note which set out his justification for his actions.. The assailants remained at the scene and asked bystanders to call the police.. The Metropolitan Police received the first 999 call about an assault at 14:20 and regular unarmed police were deployed. Subsequent 999 calls said the attackers had a firearm, and armed police were ordered to the scene at 14:24.. Unarmed police arrived at 14:29, set up a cordon, and remained behind it.. Authorised Firearms Officers arrived at 14:34..2 men, one brandishing a cleaver and the other a revolver, charged at the police. Armed police fired 8 times and both men were wounded.. They were arrested and taken to separate hospitals. A revolver, knives, and a cleaver were seized at the scene.. The victim, Rigby, was pronounced dead and formally identified..Abu Nusaybah, a friend of Adebolajo, said on BBC's Newsnight on 25 May that Adebolajo had complained of persistent questioning by the British Security Service (MI5) specifically concerning his knowledge of "certain individuals". He said Adebolajo alleged that MI5 had asked him to work with them and he had refused..Julie Siddiqi of the Islamic Society of Britain expressed concern that the killing would be used to create ethnic and community divisions..The British National Party (BNP) leader, Nick Griffin, posted a series of Twitter messages blaming "mass immigration" for the attack and called for a protest rally in Woolwich..Incidents ranged from verbal abuse to physical assaults in which women's headscarves were pulled off.. Graffiti was scrawled over mosques and Muslim-owned businesses.. Hope not Hate claimed that online activity suggested some of the attacks on Muslims were co-ordinated.. At least se7en people have been arrested for a range of social media-related issues...

"The Tigra" is the historical defender/champion of the Cat People, a humanoid race created by sorcery during the Dark Ages. Concerned about the Cat People's uncontrollable population growth and savagery, a community of sorcerers eventually banished the entire original Cat People population to a demonic netherworldly realm..Dr. Tumulo was working on the human potential experiments that turned Shirlee Bryant into the super powered villainess called the Cat. Not trusting the test subject chosen by her financial backer, Malcolm Donalbain, Greer persuaded Dr. Tumulo to let her undergo the experimental treatments as well.. She emerged with superhuman physical and mental capabilities. When Donalbain had Dr. Tumulo's lab destroyed with dynamite, Greer donned one of dozens of the Cat costumes that she had created and the doctor had appropriated and set out to put an end to his scheme. With her new abilities, she adapted quickly to the strange garb and wrecked Donalbain's headquarters. Rather than let himself be touched by the Cat's raking claws, Donalbain committed suicide. A fire set off by the ruined equipment destroyed Donalbain's headquarters.. Greer embarked on a brief crimefighting career as the Cat..

The Opel Tigra name has been applied to 2 different cars engineered and produced by the German automaker Opel, both based on different iterations of the Corsa supermini, the first built in Spain, the 2nd in France.. The first Tigra was a small 2+2 coupé, produced from 1994 to 2000. The later hard-topped convertible roadster model was introduced in 2004. The Tigra was sold in the UK as the Vauxhall Tigra, in Australia as the Holden Tigra, and was sold in Brazil, Argentina and Mexico as the Chevrolet Tigra..Zaragoza also called Saragossa in English, is the capital city of the Zaragoza province and of the autonomous community of Aragon, Spain.. It is situated on the Ebro river and its tributaries, the Huerva and the Gállego, near the centre of the region, in a valley with a variety of landscapes, ranging from desert (Los Monegros) to thick forest, meadows and mountains..Fiestas del Pilar are an annual festival celebrated in the city of Zaragoza (Spain) in honour of the patron saint of the city, the Virgen del Pilar (Virgin Mary of the Pillar).. They take place the week of the 12th of October.. On 1 September 2010 the population of the city of Zaragoza was 701,090, within its administrative limits on a land area of 1,062.64 square kilometres (410.29 square miles), ranking 5th in Spain..The city was called by the ancient Romans Caesar Augusta, from which the present name derives, perhaps influenced by the Arabic: سرقسطة‎ (Saraqusta), name of the city during the Islamic Period (714-1118).. The Iberian town that predated the Roman city was called Salduie.. The city did not suffer any decline during the last centuries of the Roman empire and was captured peacefully by the Goths in the 5th century AD.. Zaragoza was a hotbed of political intrigue. In 777 Charlemagne was invited by Husayn, the Wali (governor) of Zaragoza, to take the submission of the city but having marched an army to the city gates he found Husayn to have had a change of heart and was forced to give up after a month-long siege of the city, facing Basque attacks on his rear guard on his withdrawal..4 years later Emir Abd ar-Rahman I sent an army to reestablish firm control over the city. Husayn's family rebelled again in 788, and the head of the Banu Qasi was killed trying to put down the insurrection..Muhammad ibn Lubb ibn Qasi rebelled against the Emir in 884, and according to chronicler Ibn Hayyan he sold Zaragoza to Raymond of Pallars, but it was immediately retaken by the Emir and in 886 was given to the Banu Tujibi.. In spite of a 17-year siege by the Banu Qasi, the Banu Tujibi continued to hold the city, growing in power and autonomy, until in 1018 they broke from Cordoban control and founded an independent Taifa state..The car was imported by GM and sold as the Chevrolet Tigra in Brazil and Mexico, and as the Vauxhall Tigra in the United Kingdom.. Bottom of the ninth, Mr. Worley.. By the way, have you seen your lovely little wife today..In October 2013 British anti-terrorist police warned several Muslims who had spoken out against Islamist extremism, some of them explicitly against the murder of Lee, that they had been targeted in a video created by Al-Shabaab, the group responsible for the attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Kenya..Usually, the festival starts the weekend before the 12th, and lasts until the following Sunday, so they last about 10 days...'re a cantaloupe.. Ohhh! This guy, beautiful..That ain't any kind of fun, but what I have to offer you, that's as good as it's gonna get.. And it won't ever get that good again.. We talked to your neighbours.. They saw a Cadillac.. Purple Cadillac.. Clarence's purple Cadillac, parked in front of your trailer yesterday.. Mr. Worley..You know, it's absolutely amazing to me to think that to this day,100's of years later, that, uh, that Scottish Sicilians still carry that nigga Gene...
