REUTERS photoPrime Minister David Cameron is facing criticism for his decision to take a family holiday in Ibiza, Spain while the country is dealing with the Woolwich attack, in which a soldier was brutally murdered.
Downing Street said he “remains in charge” of Britain as he was pictured in a cafe by the sea with his wife, Samantha. Cameron has been accompanied by a small team of key staff and is being kept up to date over developments in the murder of drummer Lee Rigby. The trip, spread over the Bank Holiday weekend, comes days after the Rigby was murdered on the streets of Woolwich by two extremists.
Meanwhile, further details have emerged about the murder suspects. One of the suspects, Michael Adebolajo, was arrested in Kenya three years ago and questioned over alleged links to Islamist insurgents, but was handed over to British intelligence agents and deported because there was insufficient evidence to charge him, authorities said.
