KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Talibaninfo-icon on Wednesday denied as untrue a report that one of Mullahinfo-icon Mohammad Omar’s family members has been elected as head of the movement’s military council.

A media report recently said that Omar’s brother, Abdul Manan Hotak, was appointed as military council head after the removal of Mullah Zakir.

In a statement, the insurgent movement dismissed the report as unsubstantiated. No relative of Mullah Omar held any post, it added.
