Breaking: Taliban chief Mullah Omar detained

Pakistani media reported on Tuesday that Taliban chief Mullah Mohammad Omar has been arrested in Pakistani coastal city Karachi in March this year.

However, Taliban spokesman rejected the report as mere western propaganda, saying he is safe and sound and leading the Mujahideen in Afghanistan.

Omar is wanted by the U.S. for sheltering Osama bin-Laden and his Al-Qaeda network in the years prior to and after the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Centre in America.

Pakistan had arrested Mullah Brather, Taliban Chief No.2, earlier this year from the same city of Karachi.

Meanwhile, NATO stated that three foreign soldiers have been killed on Tuesday in bomb attacks in southern Afghanistan. NATO did not disclose the nationalities of the slain soldiers.

The deaths bring to 339 the number of foreign soldiers that have died in the Afghan conflict this year.
