SAS trains snipers to avoid kidnap by jihadis in UK…after MoD blows their cover in series of security blunders

Elite Army snipers are receiving security training from the SAS amid fears that they and their families will be targeted by Islamic terrorists following a series of blunders.

Defence chiefs published online and in official reports the names and photographs of sharpshooters – a move the snipers say could endanger their lives.

At least 50 troops, including those belonging to elite Parachute Regiment and Royal Marine units, and some who have since left the Army, have attended briefings as concerns increase for their safety.
