    Peace activist jailed for attack

    A peace activist has been jailed for eight months after an attack on a young rock singer which left him in a coma.

    New Zealander Christiaan Briggs, 30, punched Les Incompetents frontman Billy Leeson, 19, after a dispute on a bus in Islington, north London, in June.

    He was left critically ill and in a coma after hitting his head, but has since left hospital, a court heard.

    Briggs, who once acted as a human shield in Iraq, admitted a charge of grievous bodily harm.
