Taliban leader Mullah Omar is alive, a spokesman for the militant group said, according to a Pakistan-based Afghan Islamic Press news agency.

"Reports regarding the killing of Amir-ul-Moemineen (Omar) are false. He is safe and sound," Afghan Taliban spokesman Qari Muhamad Yousaf told AIP.

Afghanistan's privately owned TOLO television reported earlier Omar had been killed in Pakistan, while on the way from Quetta to North Waziristan.
