Prince Harry Battling Taliban on Front Lines in Afghanistan


LONDON — Prince Harry has been serving on the front line in Afghanistan with the British Army, the Ministry of Defense said Thursday.

Officials said the prince was still deployed in the country.

Harry, who is third in line to the throne, has been in Afghanistan since December. The deployment was not reported due to an agreement between the Ministry of Defense and news organizations, including The Associated Press.

The story was leaked by an Australian magazine and a German newspaper.
