One of the alleged killers of soldier Lee Rigby showed "no regret or remorse" as he was interviewed by a forensic psychiatrist shortly after the attack, a court has heard.
Michael Adebolajo, 28, is accused of hacking Fusilier Rigby to death with a meat cleaver and knives, along with Michael Adebowale, 22, on May 22 near Woolwich barracks.
The jury at the Old Bailey heard that in the days after the attack Adebolajo told forensic psychiatrist Tim McInnerney that his actions had been "on the basis of his religious beliefs and because British soldiers were killing people in the Middle East".
Reading a statement, prosecutor Oliver Glasgow said: "He showed no signs of regret or remorse."
Mr McInnerney added that Adebolajo warned he would be a "continuing risk to the British military".
Adebolajo and Adebowale both deny murder, as well as charges of attempted murder of a police officer and conspiracy to murder a police officer.
