Former human shield puts British rocker in coma

I'm riding Tim Blair's coattails this morning, but I couldn't ignore this. New Zealander Christiaan Taylor Briggs, who served as a human shield for Sadaam Hussein prior to the US-led invasion of Iraq in '03, stands accused of punching Billy Leeson following a dispute on a bus in North London. The punch knocked Leeson to the ground and he suffered a skull fracture when he struck his head on a footpath. The news report said Leeson's attacker ran off laughing. Leeson is in a coma and reported as in critical but stable condition.
