Afghan Taliban have vowed to kill Prince Harry

2012-09-10 14:00

Militants of the radical movement "Taliban" have declared that they would kill Britain's Prince Harry, who had arrived in Afghanistan for duty as a helicopter pilot in the Royal Air Force.


"We will do everything possible to kill Prince Harry and other British soldiers at the base in (province) Helmand. We are not trying to kidnap him. He is our aim, and we will kill him", said the representative of the "Taliban" in a phone conversation with the AFP.

The Prince arrived in Afghanistan on last Thursday and is now at the main British base "Camp Bastion" in Helmand. There he will become a co-pilot and gunner of the attack helicopter Apache. The third in line of succession for British throne, 27-year-old Harry will take part in active hostilities against the "Taliban", the RIA Novosti reported.

Prince Harry's commanding officer in Afghanistan has expressed the hope that the increased media attention to the person of the prince would not prevent him to serve along with the other pilots.

In January, after the current mission, Prince will return to the UK and will take a leave for at least a month. Then, he can go on a tour of a number of countries as a representative of the royal family, not a soldier. The British Foreign Office has asked the grandson of Queen to make a visit to China to strengthen relations with the country. The Foreign Office is also conducting negotiations with the royal court about the prospect of similar visits to Russia and India, the ITAR-TASS reported.
