Al-Qaida sympathizers call on Taliban to hunt down Prince Harry

February 29, 2008 21:20

Self-proclaimed al-Qaida supporters urged the Taliban in internet postings Friday to hunt down and kill Britain's Prince Harry after hearing that he had been sent to Afghanistan for his army service. The calls came after a US-based Web site leaked the news that Harry had been in Afghanistan for the past 10 weeks with his military unit. Britain's Defense Ministry has since announced he will be pulled out. "We ask God to enable our beloved brothers in Taliban to seize this priceless booty because nothing would break the heart of his grandmother than if she lost him," said one poster, who called himself the Sweeping Army in a message Thursday.
