Taliban leader Mullah Omar said the killing of its top field commander "won't create problems" for the hard-line militia, a spokesman said Monday.
Qari Yousef Ahmadi, who claims to speak for the Taliban, told The Associated Press that Omar and other top Taliban leaders passed condolences to Mullah Dadullah's family over the killing by the US-led coalition, the first Taliban confirmation of Dadullah's killing.
Ahmadi read a statement attributed to Omar insisting that Dadullah's death "won't create problems for the Taliban's jihad" and that militants will continue their attacks against "occupying countries."
