Six US fighter jets destroyed in Taliban attack

KABUL: Six US fighter jets were destroyed and two significantly damaged when insurgents stormed a heavily fortified Afghan base where Britain’s Prince Harry is deployed on Friday, a NATO spokesman said.

Three coalition refuelling stations were also destroyed and six aircraft hangars damaged in the assault that caused unprecedented damage at Camp Bastion in southern Helmand province, one of the toughest battlegrounds of the war, the spokesman said.
