Surprised this hasn't been covered yet. Quick warning: the video's rather unsettling (apologies for not being able to embed it properly -_-;).

Apparently, the victim's name was Lee Rigby, and he served in the army for 7 years, 6 months of which he spent in Afghanistan.
Live updates & recap of the aftermath as it happened.
To be honest, whilst the incident itself was horrible, I'm more concerned about the reactions. Already there are reports of a rise in islamophobic activity, such as attacks on Muslims. Likewise, the EDL didn't miss a beat in hijacking the fiasco as an excuse to stir up religious & racial tensions.
