    LONDON (Reuters) - One of Britain's most wanted fugitives killed two unarmed policewomen on Tuesday in a gun and grenade ambush, police said, killings which are likely to reignite a long-running debate over whether British officers should carry guns.

    Police constables Fiona Bone, 32, and Nicola Hughes, 23, were gunned down in a hail of bullets after responding to a hoax call about a burglary in the northern English city of Manchester.

    Despite shock over the murders, described by Prime Minister David Cameron as "despicable", senior police officers said they were determined that the British force would remain one of few in the world which is not routinely armed.

    "in a gun and grenade ambush"...
    So lets get this straight - a gun and grenade to kill 2 unarmed police women? Skip prison for this guy - dump him mid ocean in a swarm of jellyfish. Ocean dwellers need to eat too.
