Seen on the 6 pm BBC Television News tonight, "Green Helmet" puts on a masterful performance for John Simpson outside Tyre hospital.
But, it seems, Green Helmet is getting a little shy. Gone is the trade-mark green, his helmet now covered by a makeshift coating of white tape, with an unidentifiable badge on the front. Do you think he knows he's been clocked?
Many thanks to the readers who drew this to my attention.
