CAMP BASTION: Taliban have announced that Prince Harry was the primary target of the Camp Bastion attack last night which resulted in the death of two U.S. Marines and several other being injured. A commander of the Afghan rebel group have recently admitted this and has stated that the reason behind the attack was to attack the Royal family and take revenge for the Anti-Islamic video that has recently created an outburst within the Muslim world.
Heavily armed insurgents attacked a British air base in southern Afghanistan late on Friday, killing two U.S. Marines and wounding several other troops, U.S. officials said.
An estimated 16 Taliban fighters were also killed in the assault, said Lt. Col. Stewart Upton, a spokesman at Camp Leatherneck, a U.S. Marine based adjacent to the air base, Camp Bastion.
Prince Harry, third in line to the British throne, is stationed at Camp Bastion on a four-month combat tour. There was no immediate word on his whereabouts at the time of the attack.
U.S. officials said the attack at the base in Afghanistan’s Helmand province involved a range of insurgent weaponry, possibly including mortars, rockets or rocket-propelled grenades, as well as small arms fire. Agencies
