Death threat issued to Prince Harry, again

Death threat issued to Prince Harry, again
Taliban on Monday threatened to kill Britain's Prince Harry, who is serving a fresh deployment in Afghanistan as an Apache attack helicopter pilot, four years after his previous battle stint in the war-torn country was cut short over similar threats.

Describing 27-year-old Prince Harry as a ‘high-value target’, a militia spokesman said they will ‘make their best efforts to arrest or kill’ him, the Sky news reported. The Army captain, the third in line to the British throne, arrived in Afghanistan for his second tour of duty last week. He is deployed in southern province of Helmand, one of the bloodiest war zones in the 10-year-old conflict.

The London-based TV channel quoted Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid as saying: ‘Whoever is fighting in our country alongside the US is our enemy and we will attack him.’ ‘Prince Harry came to Afghanistan and he is a high value target for us.,’ he said.
