US removes Mullah Omer from most wanted terrorist list

Islamabad, Wed, 28 Dec 2011 ANI

Islamabad, Dec 28 (ANI): Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar has been removed from the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation's list of "most wanted terrorists".


However, the names of Ayman Al Zawahiri and Hakimullah Mehsud still remain on the list, The Nation reports.


Earlier, reports about the US establishing contacts with Omar had surfaced.


According to the reports, the US wanted to bring the Taliban to the negotiating table in order to end the conflict in Afghanistan.


So far, several claims have been made by the US about negotiations with the Taliban, but Pakistan and Afghanistan have never been taken into confidence over the much speculated-about talks.


Omar was earlier wanted by the US State Department's Rewards for Justice program since October 2001, for sheltering Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda militants in the years prior to the 11 September attacks. (ANI)
