Guns on the Roof

An interesting looking cache was discovered recently at the Iraqi Embassy in London:

A safe in the building was recently opened revealing sub-machine guns, handguns and listening devices.

No doubt someone in the comments box will come up with a perfectly valid reason law-abiding and peace-loving diplomats needed a store of fully-automatic military weapons at their place of work.

Perhaps the $2.8 million reward for killing a certain Booker Prize winner the Islamic Republic of Iran is still dangling before the world’s “zealous muslims” got to be too tempting a prize for a junior Embassy worker frustrated by his lack of progress up the Baathist greasy pole ?
