Taliban leader Mullah Omar is dead: Afghan intelligence
Taliban leader Mullah Omar died two years ago, Afghanistan’s intelligence agency spokesman Haseeb Sediqi said Wednesday.
The comments came after unnamed government and militant sources said earlier that he had died.
“Mullah Omar is dead. He died in a Karachi hospital in April 2013… under mysterious circumstances,” Sediqi, the spokesman for the National Directorate of Security, told AFP.
