DOESN'T ANYONE EDIT REUTERS?:

Colombia to pay reward to rebel who shot commander (Reuters, 3/14/08)

Colombia will pay a reward to a FARC guerrilla who shot dead his commander and cut off the man's hand to prove his identity in a case that sparked debate over a program to compensate informants, authorities said on Friday.

Pablo Montoya, alias Rojas, killed Ivan Rios, one of the FARC's top seven secretariat commanders, and turned himself in to soldiers in what the government described as a serious blow to Latin America's oldest rebel insurgency.

Handing out rewards...


Good one!

An unforgivable violation of the Law of Parsimony. He could have just given them the finger.
