Taliban: We’ll Kidnap Prince Harry

Prince Harry has become one of the Taliban’s No. 1 targets after arriving in Afghanistan to pilot attack helicopters in Her Majesty’s service, Taliban officials have confirmed to Reuters. They even dubbed the plots to assassinate or kidnap the 27-year-old royal the “Harry operations.” Harry previously served in Afghanistan in 2008, but had his tour cut short after news of his location leaked out. “We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping,” Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, told Reuters. “We have informed our commanders in Helmand to do whatever they can to eliminate him.”
