IRAQ: A Canadian sniper in Iraq has shattered the world record for the longest confirmed kill shot in military history—at a staggering distance of 3,540 meters, or 2.1 miles. The member of Joint Task Force 2 used a McMillan TAC-50 sniper rifle in killing an ISIS militant within the past month, according to the Canadian Armed Forces. The bullet reportedly took less than 10 seconds to reach its target.
