press release and even video of harry there in an hipachee helicopter. now, in previous visits, there was no public announcement. they did not reveal his location for his own safety. so it seemed rather odd at the time. and immediately after the british made the announcement, the taliban issued a statement saying they would do everything in their power to eert cither ce or kill prince harry. and there's no clue yet as to whether prince harry was the target. but it is a very bizarre coincidence. >> and a challenging situation for everyone involved. thank you, jim. >> you bet. >> a man stalks a woman on metro then sexually assaults her at gunpoint just a few blocks awaif. tonight, d.c. police are releasing this surveillance video.
