Coldstream Guards Sniper Kills Six Taliban With One Shot

, , , ,

The Telegraph reports belatedly-released news of an unusual feat of arms.

A British sniper in Afghanistan killed six insurgents with a single bullet after hitting the trigger switch of a suicide bomber whose device then exploded, The Telegraph has learnt.

The 20-year-old marksman, a Lance Corporal in the Coldstream Guards, hit his target from 930 yards (850 metres) away, killing the suicide bomber and five others around him caught in the blast.

The incident in Kakaran in southern Afghanistan happened in December but has only now been disclosed. …

Lt Col Richard Slack, commanding officer of 9/12 Royal Lancers, said the unnamed sharpshooter prevented a major attack by the Taliban, as a second suicide vest packed with 20kg (44lbs) of explosives was found nearby.

There’s an old saying dating back to the Kent State shootings – “It’s not smart to throw baggies of poop at armed men. It’s not even smart to be standing next to the guy who’s throwing bags of poop at armed men”. I might add that it’s not even smart to be standing next to the guy in a suicide vest.
