White Warriors and Heroes
A British sniper killed a Taliban leader with the longest-ever fatal bullet shot in Afghanistan - from nearly TWO KILOMETRES away.
Corporal Christopher Reynolds, 25, camped on the roof of a shop for three days as he waited for the perfect conditions to shoot the terrorist commander.
He calculated the range, wind and trajectory before pulling the trigger - and the bullet flew 1,853 metres before hitting the target in the chest.
The warlord, known as 'Mula', is thought to be responsible for co-ordinating several attacks against British and American troops since the outbreak of war in 2001.
Cpl Reynolds, of 3 Scots, The Black Watch, who has already killed 32 rebel fighters, has now been credited with the longest kill in Afghanistan at 1.15 miles away.

When four men burst into his store shouting it was a holdup and brandishing a pistol, owner Charles Augusto Jr complied with their demands.
But when one of the robbers began to pistol whip an employee it was too much for the 72-year-old.
He pulled a 12-gauge pump action shotgun from beneath his desk and began firing.
The blasts hit all four men, killing two and leaving two others critically injured.
