The Foreign Office said Sunday that Chief Superintendent Colin Terry, who attended a community festival dressed as Osama bin Laden, would not be returning to serve with the EU policing mission in Afghanistan. Terry had already apologized for what he called his "error of judgment." Terry's employer, Devon and Cornwall Police, said his behavior was unacceptable and a police watchdog is investigating. Terry wore the costume at a parade during the Grampound Carnival in southwest England on Sept. 6. Pictures of Terry in robes and a bin Laden mask appeared in British papers Thursday, on the seventh anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
