A Taliban spokesman has announced the terror group is determined to kill Prince Harry, who is in Afghanistan deployed on his second military mission.
“We will try to kill Prince Harry and other members of the British forces based in Halmand,’’ the spokesman told AFP in a telephone interview. “We will not catch him, but kill him.”
The Taliban spokesman said its “a very important plan ” for the group to capture Prince Harry, who is third in succession to the British throne.
Prince Harry, who made news in the U.S. last month when he was photographed naked while partying in Las Vegas, began a temporary assignment in Afghanistan as a pilot of an Apache helicopter.
This deployment, lasting four months, is the second for the prince.
His previous mission in 2007 was kept secret until the foreign media revealed it. For security reasons, the prince was sent home after ten weeks.
