Paintball Jihad Part III

The uses for paintball guns just keep multiplying...

HANOI (AP) - Police in the Vietnamese capital have a new gun in their holsters and it's got a colourful bang. They've armed themselves with paintball guns to brand and track robbers and illegal motorbike racers.

The guns, introduced Monday, will be used to pelt thieves and racers with red, yellow and green dyes, said Tran Quoc Hung, administrative head of Hanoi's police. The guns have a range of 10 metres and will help police to track fast-moving suspects on motorcycles who could otherwise dart unnoticed into a sea of other bikes.
