Omar may have been arrested: Afghan minister

Deposed Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar may have been arrested, an Afghan minister claimed in the early hours of Friday, British media reports said.

Afghan Minister for Reconstruction Amin Farhang told German ARD TV news: "I have heard that he was arrested but more I do not know."

According to The Guardian newspaper, the Taliban spiritual leader was earlier reported to have been surrounded in his mountain hideout.

Talks with those believed to be harbouring the cleric were galvanised by threats of US bombing.

However, leader of the interim government Hamid Karzai denied the report in an exclusive interview with ABC News.

"If he had been captured, I would know it," he said.
