Prince Harry blasted by Taliban

Britain's Prince Harry has been accused of having a 'mental problem' by a Taliban spokesperson.
The prince was blasted following an interview he made shortly before leaving Afghanistan - where he has been serving as an Apache helicopter pilot - and said his job was a 'joy' because it was like playing video games, and now the representative has claimed Harry didn't even get involved in any military action.
The spokesperson, Zabiullah Mujahid, said: 'I think he has a mental problem, that's why he is saying it is a game. These kind of people live like diplomats in Afghanistan, they can't risk themselves by standing against the mujahideen [self-proclaimed 'holy warriors'.
'He never participated in a war operation so that's why he can't see the UK casualties, the UK economic damages and the lost soldiers' lives in Helmand.
'I don't believe that he participated in the fighting. Maybe he has seen the mujahideen in a movie, but that's it.'
Despite the outburts, the spokesperson insisted he was not angry about Harry's remarks because 'he doesn't have the brain to know there is a war here'.
He went on to claim the prince was protected round-the-clock by bodyguards.
He added: 'There were always bodyguards with him to protect him, always keeping him away from the area of war or making plans to keep him away.'
