Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar dies

Editor's note: Journalists in Afghanistan are tweeting that Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar is dead, citing a report from the government. The situation appears to be complex, as it may be the Afghan government or security forces 'concluding' that he is dead, because he hasn't been seen in recent months. There's nothing further on whether he was killed or if they have any physical evidence of his death, there's also no Taliban reply yet. We'll have more as it comes in. - David
