The Taliban claimed responsibility on Saturday, Sept. 15 2012, for an attack against the sprawling British base in southern Afghanistan that killed two U.S. Marines and wounded several other troops, saying it was to avenge an anti-Islamic film which insulted the Prophet Muhammad and also because Britain's Prince Harry is serving there. Camp Bastion, which is the middle of the Afghanistan desert, locally called Dasht-e-Margo or "the Desert of Death" houses some 3,500 British servicemen and provides logistic supports to all the troops for their various operations in Southern Afghan.
