Former-SAS boss who led British hunt for Osama bin Laden is appointed as new Army chief

New York[RR]UK-Downing Street-London–The former director of Britain’s special forces responsible for leading the hunt for Osama bin Laden has been named as the new head of the Army.

Lieutenant-General Mark Carleton-Smith is due to replace General Sir Nick Carter as chief of the general staff following interviews with Gavin Williamson, the Defence Secretary.

Mr Williamson is said to have favoured Lt-Gen Carleton-Smith following his distinguished career in the special forces, during which he headed the SAS in the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks.

The Old Etonian, 54, was head of the SAS in 2002, at a time when it was pursuing the leader of al-Qaeda along with US special forces.
