Taliban dispute claim that leader Mullah Omar is dead

A Taliban spokesman says the group’s phones and website were hacked, and text messages sent out saying their re­clusive Afghan leader Mullah Moha­mmed Omar is dead – a claim the group has denied, CNN informs. Omar is alive and the reports “are just propaganda against our leader and our mission,” spokesman Zabi­hullah Nujahid told CNN. NATO said it has no operational knowledge of Omar’s condition or whereabouts.
