An Afghan governmental source has confirmed that Mullah Omar, the supreme leader of Taliban group is dead.
“Pakistani officials officialy confirmed death of Taliban’s leader and informed the news to the Afghan authorities,” on the condition of anonymity the source has said.
Earlier a splinter group of the Afghan Taliban claimed that Mullah Omar was killed two years ago.
The Afghanistan Islamic Movement Fidai Mahaz’s spokesperson Qari Hamza, said the reclusive Omar was killed by commanders Mullah Akhtar Muhammad Mansoor and Gull Agha in July 2013.
The Taliban supreme leader has not been seen in public in years, but recently an Eid message was released in his name endorsing peace talks.
