This amateur video purportedly shows the aftermath of a deadly Taliban attack on a coalition base in Afghanistan. Reuters could not independently verify the content of this video. But US officials have confirmed two American soldiers died Friday during a raid on Camp Bastion, seen here earlier this month. The Taliban said the attack was in response to a controversial US-made film about the prophet Mohammed. The film sparked protests Friday in Afghanistan, with demonstrators calling it blasphemous and chanting "Death to America". Camp Bastion is largest coalition base in Afghanistan and it is also home to Britain's Prince Harry. The royal is serving a tour as a helicopter pilot and was not injured in the raid, which left 17 suspected insurgents dead. The Taliban have previously said they would do everything in their power to kidnap or kill Queen Elizabeth's grandson, in what it dubbed "Operation Harry".
