Hosted by  • 

Mullah Omar founded and led the Taliban, which ruled Afghanistan until it was toppled by the United States after September 11, 2001. Now -- after years of rumors — officials in both Afghanistan and neighboring Pakistan have confirmed that Mullah Omar died in a Pakistani hospital two years ago. Sune Engel Rasmussen joins us from Kabul, where he reports for the Guardian and other news outlets.
