Jeremy Corbyn shocked at his image being used for 'target practice'

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Britain's opposition Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Wednesday (April 3) he was shocked after a video circulated on social media apparently showing soldiers using a picture of him for target practice.

The defence ministry said it had launched an investigation into the video, posted on Snapchat, which shows four paratroopers firing shots at the picture with the caption "happy with that".

A Labour spokesman called the behavior alarming and unacceptable but said the party was confident the Army would investigate and act on the incident.

The soldiers have been widely criticized by lawmakers.
