Britain: Muslim Man Admits Threatening to Kill Prince Harry
A white British convert to Islam has admitted to threatening to murder Prince Harry, British media outlets report.
Mark Townley, 30, who now goes by the name Ashraf Islam, walked into a police station and confessed to wanting to murder the prince.
Police searched Islam’s laptop and found that he had visited terrorist websites.
Islam has served time in jail in the past, and reportedly converted to Islam in prison. He reportedly described himself as a "part time" Muslim.
Prince Harry, 28, is third in line for the throne. British officials have expressed concern that Harry could be a target for terrorists due to his tours of Afghanistan. He served in Afghanistan twice, with the Household Cavalry and the Army Air Corps.
