Prince Harry makes first Afghanistan kill

By William Spain

CHICAGO (MarketWatch) — Britain’s Prince Harry participated in his first combat kill this week, co-piloting a helicopter gunship that slew a top Taliban commander with a Hellfire missile, the U.K. newspaper the Mirror reports. The British royal was part of a team hunting insurgents in the war-torn Helmand Province. The Taliban had previously put a $40,000 bounty on Harry’s head, telling Reuters in September that they were “using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping.”
