Taliban reject report of leader`s hospitalisation
Kabul: A Taliban spokesman rejected a report on Thursday that the group`s little-seen one-eyed leader was treated for a heart attack in a Pakistani hospital with the help of that country`s spy agency.
The report from a private intelligence-gathering company was unfounded, Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement.
"It is more propaganda, part of the rumour-war launched by the enemy," Mujahid said.
Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar has no heart issues, he added.
The Pakistani Army, which controls the powerful Inter-Services Intelligence agency, also denied the report on Thursday.
The Eclipse Group, a private intelligence network, circulated the report, saying it came from a doctor at the hospital who had seen Omar, though he had not been part of the operating team.
