LONDON (Reuters) - A British teenager was found guilty on Thursday of plotting to behead a soldier in London after being influenced by the murder of an Afghan war veteran who was hacked to death by two Islamists in the capital a year earlier.

Muslim convert Brusthom Ziamani, 19, was arrested last August carrying a 12-inch (30-cm) knife and a hammer, wrapped in a black Islamic flag.
