LONDON (WKOW)-- A Taliban spokesman said Monday that the terror group would use "all our strength" to kidnap or kill the U. K.'s Prince Harry, who has just begun serving a four-month tour of duty as a chopper pilot in Afghanistan."
"We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping," Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Reuters by phone. "We have informed our commanders in Helmand to do whatever they can to eliminate him." Prince Harry, known as Captain Wales in the British Army, is stationed at Camp Bastion in Helmand Province, on the front line. The 27-year-old son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana is the third in line to the throne, after his father and his older brother, William.
The British government declined to comment on threats against Harry, but NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said he wasn't worried. He says, "We do everything we can to protect all our troops deployed to Afghanistan, whatever might be their background."
