London, Mar 6: Terrorists have vowed to kidnap or kill Prince Harry when he fights in Iraq, the Sun reported on Monday March 5.

The 22-year-old prince — third in line to the throne — is due to be sent out in May with colleagues from the Blues and Royals regiment.

The Sun says that threats to his life have been posted on extremist websites ever since his deployment was revealed.

One message said, “Prince Harry will be sent to Iraq to be killed by Muslims.”

Another added, “May Allah give him what he deserves — like his fellow crusaders.”

Army officials fear the Prince will be paraded on television if he is kidnapped.
A Blues and Royals source told the paper that the prince would serve in armoured vehicles.

“Officially Harry is being treated just like any other soldier but in reality everyone knows how desperate the insurgents out there will be to get their hands on him.”

Internet terror expert Neil Doyle was quoted as saying, “Harry would be the ultimate prize for one of these insurgent groups. He would be worth his weight in gold in propaganda terms if killed or captured.”

From the end of May, the prince will be patrolling in Scimitar armoured reconnaissance vehicles in Maysan.

Harry will pose as a hooded hostage in a special training exercise, this week, to prepare him and fellow soldiers to combat al-Qaeda hostage-takers in Iraq.

They will take part in role-play exercises where “armed enemy kidnappers” take hostages. Then troops storm a building in a rescue mission. — The Sun
