Two U.S. Marines have been killed in an attack on a British military base in Afghanistan where Britain's Prince Harry is stationed.

Military officials say insurgents used mortars and rockets against Camp Bastion in Helmand Province early Saturday.

They say Prince Harry, who is third in line to the British throne, was never in any danger.

He is deployed there as a helicopter pilot. The Taliban has vowed to kill him, but it is unclear if he was the target of Saturday's attack.
