To Afghanistan, Kandahar from PakistanMullah Omar’s family members, some Taliban leaders returned from Pakistan to Afghanistan" rel="nofollow - Some family members of Mullah Mohammad Omar and several leaders of the Taliban group have reportedly returned from Pakistan to Kandahar.

The provincial police chief of southern Kandahar province Gen. Abdul Raziq informed the return of the Taliban leaders as he was speaking to reporters in Kandahar late on Saturday.

Gen. Raziq further added that some family members of Mullah Omar and at least fifteen leaders of the group have returned to Kandahar.

Without providing further information regarding the identities of the returnees, Gen. Raziq said some of the high ranking leaders of the group are also among those who have returned and some of them have previously served as governors and in other high posts when Taliban regime was in power.

In the meantime, Gen. Raziq said the Taliban leaders and family members of Mullah Omar were encouraged by the local officials in Kandahar to return and rejected any other party’s involvement in the process.

The Taliban insurgents group has not commented regarding the report so far.

It is also yet not clear if the son of Mullah Omar is also among those who have returned as he was appointed the military commission of the group after the death of his father and appointment of Mullah Ahtar Mansoor." rel="nofollow -
