Taliban: We Targeted Prince Harry

A Taliban commander said on Saturday that Prince Harry was the target of a Friday night attack on a military compound in Afghanistan. The attack killed two U.S. marines, though British officials say the attackers "were nowhere near Captain Wales" (the prince's official name in the military). Other Taliban spokesmen, however, said the attack had nothing to do with Prince Harry and was intended as revenge for the anti-Islamic film The Innocence of Muslims, which has sparked violence throughout the Middle East.
