“We are going to use all our strength to kidnap or kill the U.K.’s Prince Harry, a Taliban spokesman said Monday. Prince Harry has just begun serving a four-month tour of duty as a chopper pilot in Afghanistan.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Reuters via phone that they are using all their resources to get rid of the prince, either by killing or kidnapping and that they have informed their commanders in Helmand to do whatever they can to eliminate the target. Mujahid told the Agence France Presse the same threat that the terror group had a “high-value plan” to get the prince. He added that it is not important for them to adduct him, but they will target him and kill him.
Captain Wales as Prince Harry, 27, is known in the British Army, is stationed at Camp Bastion in Helmand province, on the front line. Way back in 2008, the prince also served a tour of duty in Afghanistan, but it was cut short because of publicity.
NATO Secretary-Generalwas not worried of the threat and the British government has refused to comment on the threats against Harry. Rasmussen said at a press conference in Brussels that they do everything they can to protect all their troops deployed to Afghanistan, whatever might be their personal background.
Harry was a headliner last month after he was caught on film partying naked with friends in Las Vegas.
