Report: Taliban Names Anti-U.S. Leadership

June 24
— ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - The shadowy leader of Afghanistan's former Taliban regime, Mullah Omar, has named a 10-man leadership council to organize resistance against foreign troops in the country, a news report said Tuesday.

Pakistani newspaper, The News, quoted a Taliban spokesman saying that Mullah Omar announced the formation of the body in an audio tape sent from his hiding place in Afghanistan.

The whereabouts of Mullah Omar and al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, who is blamed for masterminding the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, remain unknown despite more than a year and a half of U.S.-led operations in Afghanistan.

In the tape, Mullah Omar called on the Taliban to make sacrifices to drive out U.S. and other foreign troops and the "puppet" government of U.S.-backed President Hamid Karzai, the paper quoted Mohammed Mukhtar Mujahid as saying.

The paper said members of the "Rahbari Shura," or leadership council, were mostly Taliban military commanders and most were from the southwest of the country.

The paper said they included former defense minister Mullah Obaidullah and military commanders including the one-legged Mullah Dadullah and Akhtar Mohammad Usmani.

Officials of the Taliban, driven from power by a U.S.-led coalition in late 2001, could not immediately be reached for comment.
