On Friday, at a base in southern Afghanistan, two U.S. Marines were killed and other Americans were injured during a Taliban attack where Britain's Prince Harry is stationed, U.S. officials told Reuters.

Prince Harry was on the base at the time of the attack but was unharmed, a spokesman for NATO-led forces in Afghanistan said. Martyn Crighton said the Prince was never in any danger, adding that the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) would look into this incident whether his presence on the base had encouraged the attack.


Rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and small-arms fire were involved in the attack, with rebels breaking the perimeter of Camp Bastion in explosive Helmand province, U.S. officials said.

The attack took place between 9 p.m. and midnight on Friday and that NATO-led forces were still securing the area in and around Camp Bastion, Crighton said.
