(Newser) – The Taliban is hell-bent on harming Prince Harry during his latest combat tour in Afghanistan. "We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping," a spokesman for the Afghan Taliban told Reuters today. "We have informed our commanders in Helmand to do whatever they can to eliminate him." He implied that there were plans for "Harry operations." The third in line for the throne arrived at Camp Bastion in restive Helmand province last week, and will be stationed there for four months.
