Reach out and touch someone . . .

THE TELEGRAPH has a book review by Toby Harnden of an account of the British trials in Afghanistan, "Dead Men Risen". This column is about the snipers.

Operating from a remote patrol base in Helmand, two British snipers were responsible for killing 75 Taliban fighters in just 40 days. In one remarkable feat of marksmanship, two insurgents were dispatched with a single bullet.

Apparently, the twofer is known as a "Quigley".
