Prince Harry's Life Openly Threatened By Taliban
It's been mostly fun and games for British royal Prince Harry, 27, lately, with a little bit of harmless fallout — including a great deal of Facebook recognition — from his naked Las Vegas antics, but now things appear to be getting real for Harry, as the spokesperson for the Taliban recently issued a serious threat against Harry's life during his four-month tour of Afghanistan.
Harry is currently on the front lines of the volatile Helmand region, and has been there for four days, reports the U.K.'s Daily Mail. "We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping," said militant Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid, who reportedly identified the prince and third in line to the British throne as one of the organization's prime targets.
Prince Harry's first tour of duty in Afghanistan in 2008 was cut short when a news blackout, designed to protect him while he was on the front line, failed.
While the British government has not yet responded to the Taliban's issued threats, NATO is making it clear that they are not intimidated. "That's not a matter of concern," said NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen at a Brussels press conference, reports ABC News. "We do everything we can to protect all our troops deployed to Afghanistan, whatever might be their personal background.
