The prince (28) said he had taken members of the Taliban "out of the game" during his posting in Helmand.

"Take a life to save a life. That's what we revolve around, I suppose."

The Taliban labelled him a "coward" for speaking out only after he had left the country, claiming he "has probably developed a mental problem" as a result of playing too many computer games.

In Britain, the Stop the War Coalition said his comments were "arrogant and insulting" and questioned how Prince Harry, who served as co-pilot in an Apache attack helicopter, knew the men he had killed were Taliban members. (© Independent News Service)
