One of the corpses of two murdered men found in Acapulco, Mexico, on 5 February 2011. More than 30,000 people have been killed in violence related to the drug trade in Mexico since December 2006.
A WWII Russian female sniper was killed by a German counter sniper, her scoped rifle at her side. The impact of the explosive bullet totally destroyed the lower part of the woman’s face. Due to the Hague Convention of the laws of war Germany did not produce explosive rifle-ammunition. So the German snipers in the field equipped themselves with looted Russian and Yugoslavian bullets and rifles. The rare explosive ammo was used for “important shots” on enemy officers and especially counter-sniper action.
