What do snipers munch on when they feel peckish?

Just imagine, you're a sniper, sitting there, hidden away, peering out through a ventilation slot every couple of seconds, waiting for the 73-year-old man you've come to kill.

You haven't eaten in ages and your stomach is growling.

With both eyes on the Foreign Minister's garden and his swimming pool, you reach back with one hand for your knapsack and pull out a wedge of cheese, bite off a piece then put it aside. That wasn't enough. Now you feel like something sweet. Back into the knapsack, fumble around, where is it, ah, here it is. A bar of chocolate going soft in the Colombo morning heat.

The UK's Sunday Times in reporting on the assassination of Laxman Kadirgamar: "Police found cheese and chocolate that the snipers had been eating as they waited for their target." Link to the full story.

Cheese and Chocolate :-) Sounds more like stuff kids would eat, rather than hardcore Tamil Tiger terrorists ...
