LONDON: Britain's Prince Harry has acknowledged that he killed Taliban insurgents on his latest tour of duty in Afghanistan as a crew member of an Apache attack helicopter.
The prince, whose five-month deployment to the country has just ended, spoke about his role as an Apache co-pilot gunner, and whether he had killed.
"Yeah, so lots of people have. The squadron's been out here. Everyone's fired a certain amount," he said, according to the (BBC).
"If there's people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we'll take them out of the game," he said, adding "We fire when we have to, take a life to save a life, but essentially we're more of a deterrent than anything else."
Prince Harry left Afghanistan on Monday.
Prince Harry is the first member of the Royal Family to see active combat since his uncle, the Duke of York, fought in the Falklands War. (QNA)
