LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Prince Harry is currently on the frontlines in Afghanistan, and the Taliban is making official threats to harm the British royal on his tour.
The Prince arrived Friday in the Middle East to begin his four month commitment, wrapping up his training at Camp Bastion before co-piloting an Apache attack helicopter. The royal will be stationed in Afghanistan's southern Helmand providence, which happens to be a major hub of Taliban activity.
"We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping," a Taliban spokesperson said in a statement.
The British Ministry of Defence has yet to comment on the threats, but very few details have been released about Prince Harry's tour for security purposes.
Harry previously traveled to serve in Afghanistan in 2007 and 2008.
