A key Taliban commander Mullah Dadullah was killed in Helmand province of southern Afghanistan, an officer of the National Directorate of Security said on Sunday.

Dadullah was believed to be the top Taliban military leader in southern Afghanistan.

He was a member of the Taliban's 10-man leadership council before the US-led invasion in 2001, and also was a close aide to senior Taliban leader Mullah Omar.
