Taleban threatens to "do everything possible" to kill Prince Harry
QANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AFP) - The Taleban said on Monday it was determined to kill Britain's Prince Harry, who is serving in Afghanistan, four years after his previous deployment was cut short over security concerns.
A militia spokesman said the group had a "high-value plan" to attack the third in line to the British throne in southern province Helmand, one of the toughest battlefields in the 10-year war.
"We will do our best to kill Prince Harry and Britain's other troops based in Helmand," the spokesman said. "It is not important for us to kidnap him. We will target him and we will kill him," he added.
The 27-year-old Apache helicopter pilot, who hit the headlines last month after he was photographed naked at a party in Las Vegas, will spend four months based at the heavily fortified Camp Bastion in Helmand.
