Prince says he has killed insurgents


Britain's Prince Harry says he killed Afghan insurgents during sorties against the Taliban while on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, where he was a gunner in Apache attack helicopters.

Queen Elizabeth's 28-year-old grandson, third in line to the British throne, will return home later this week after a 20-week posting with Nato forces at the Camp Bastion military base in the southern province of Helmand.

Asked if he had killed insurgents, he said: "Yes, we fire when we have to, take a life to save a life, but essentially we're more of a deterrent than anything else." - (Reuters)
