Be safe, Harry.
(C4N) — On the day that Prince Harry returned to Afghanistan, where he will spend four months flying Apache attack helicopters, senior Taliban commanders said they would use Afghan army recruits to either kidnap or assassinate the prince.
Speaking on the telephone from somewhere within in Helmand, Maulvi Ahmadullah Ahmadyar said: “It’s good news for us as we are always in search for such precious birds.
“Our priority will be to kidnap him at any cost as we have our informers at the military base being used by the British troops here in Helmand.
“And if we don’t succeed then obviously we would like to eliminate him through our Afghan friends working with British troops.”
He added that he knew tricks to recruit people within the Afghan army to target foreign troops.
Another commander, Mulla Burjan, threatened to target Harry in his helicopter with rocket-propelled grenades.
“We will be happy to see him here as we heard he will be flying Apache helicopter,” he said. “I will love to hit his chopper with my RPG.”
