Terrorists ‘may target Invictus Games’ after Harry says he killed 25 people

Admiral Lord West, former head of the Royal Navy, called the Duke of Sussex ‘very stupid’ for giving details of his Taliban kills.

Prince Harry has been accused of making the Invictus Games a target for extremists by revealing he killed 25 people in Afghanistan.

Admiral Lord West, former head of the Royal Navy, called the Duke of Sussex ‘very stupid’ for giving details of his Taliban kills.

The retired admiral told the Sunday Mirror the Invictus Games – which were due to be held in Dusseldorf, Germany, in 2023 – will now have ‘serious security issues’ because of their direct connection to Harry.

‘The Invictus Games is very much labelled to him and so I would have thought the threat level there will definitely be higher,’ he told the newspaper.

‘There will be serious security issues because of what he said. Measures will have to be put in place to protect the veterans.

‘And there will be people who, given half the chance, will want to do something.’

The international multi-sport event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, of which the duke is the patron, will now be a prime target for those wanting revenge, Lord West said.

‘The Taliban will be reading (Harry’s claims about killing fighters and) thinking there’s this prince calling us all chess pieces and is quite happy about killing us.

‘And there will be a lot of people, I am sure, in Islamic State and other terrorist organisations, who will think this is something which should be avenged.’
