DON'T YOU JUST LOVE THE EASY RIDER ENDING?:

Taliban leader killed by British revenge strike (Martin Bentham, 02.06.09, Evening Standard)

A Taliban commander blamed for the death of two British troops in Afghanistan has been killed by helicopter gunners while trying to flee on a motorbike, the Ministry of Defence said today.

Mullah Mansur, who British forces believe organised a suicide attack that killed Sergeant Ben Ross of the Royal Military Police and Gurkha Corporal Kumar Pun last month, was shot by a British Apache's 30- calibre machinegun. He had been cornered in Helmand province yesterday.
