Tripoli, 31 July 2015:
A member of the antigovernment in Tripoli has mourned the death of Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Omar, . . .[restrict]which the organisation confirmed yesterday.
A former leader of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, Khaled Al-Sherrif is reported by Al-Watan to have described Omar as a “hero”.
He said he had known the Taliban leader personally and that Omar had sought to unite Afghanistan and provide peace and security.
On his social media page, Sherrif is understood to have complained that Omar “lost his eye for the sake of the victory of religion against the Soviets, yet the western media has distorted him”. [/restrict]
