Laden has left Taleban-controlled areas: Zaeef

K J M Varma in Islamabad

The Taleban on Monday said Osama bin Laden has left the militia-controlled areas in Afghanistan.

Taleban ambassador to Pakistan Abdul Saleem Zaeef said he knew nothing about bin Laden's whereabouts, but believed that he no longer hid himself in the Taleban-controlled areas in Afghanistan's south.

Zaeef returned to Islamabad from Kandahar on Sunday after consultations with the Taleban leadership.

Zaeef said he was told that the Taleban still controlled the provinces of Farah, Kandahar, Zabul and Helmand.

"We have deployed our mujahideen over there and all these areas are in our full control," he said.

Asked about anti-Pushtun leaders like Hamid Karzai who are mobilising support against the Taleban, he said: "They are a handful of people. People are fed up with them and they understand that they are working for the United States."

Taleban chief Mullah Mohammed Omar, he said, has been changing places in Kandahar to escape US bombing.

The Taliban supreme leader, Zaeef said, has been in touch with the rest of the militia in a very organised manner.
