A Taliban spokesman has claimed that thousands of British-born Muslim attackers are prepared to give their lives for prophet Mohammed and slay Prince Harry.
Qari Yousef Ahmadi, a spokesman for Taliban, has said hundreds of young men are leaving their loved ones in the UK to train with the Taliban in Afghanistan.
“We have thousands of attackers ready to give up their lives for the prophet Mohammed and kill the prince. That is our intention. They come from all over the world – from England, Pakistan,” the Daily Star quoted Ahmadi, as saying.
“They will lay down their lives so that the world will know our anger. The British and American invaders are not welcome in this land and must leave,” he added.
Fears for Harry’s safety escalated after 19 attackers armed with rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and automatic weapons breached the perimeter of Camp Bastion earlier this month.
Two US Marines were killed and five aircraft damaged before British troops killed 18 attackers and captured one during the attack.
Prince Harry was moved to a guarded location during a recent Taliban attack on Camp Bastion that killed two US Marines, British officials say.
