I would not be surprised if it were some young (less than 25) men with more guns than brains.
Young men with enough brains though to load mags without leaving fingerprints. Not your average hillbilly.
: including more than 100 fingerprint-free shell casings similar to ones used by AK-47s were found at the site, and small piles of rocks that appeared to have been left by an advance scout to tell the attackers where to get the best shots.edit on 5-2-2014 by whywhynot because: (no reason given)
NO accurate AK-47 variants rifles right?What aboutthe following rifle.
Also there is a newly created version of the AK called the TABUK sniper rifle. Its used by Iraqis.

The round itself prevents anything chambered in it from being considered "sniper".
It is a common misconception that any scoped rifle is a sniper rifle, and while certain long guns are more suited for the application than others, it is the act of using a weapon strategically as a sniper that designates it as such

Wrong. We were talking about the AK-47 specifically. Not one of it's variants.
