Prince Harry's admission that he killed Taliban fighters while working as a helicopter gunner in Afghanistan drew intense British media coverage Tuesday and sparked concerns about possible reprisals.
Hours after a British soldier in Afghanistan told medics she was suffering from stomach pains, the Royal Artillery gunner unexpectedly gave birth to a boy _ the first child ever born to a member of Britain's armed forces in combat.
A British soldier has given birth to a son while serving in Afghanistan at the same camp where Prince Harry is deployed and a Taliban attack last week killed two U.S. Marines.
If there's a large explosion and no more enemy fire from the target area, the gunner can be "pretty sure" the enemy has been killed, Heyman said.
Former officer Charles Heyman, who edits a yearbook on British forces, said the prince's words may raise the already high threat level against him.
