NATO officials confirmed Mullah Dadullah’s death Sunday.

In a brief written statement NATO says the Taleban commander was killed in a U.S.-led coalition operation and called his death “a serious blow” to the insurgency.

Saeed Ansari, spokesman for the Afghan intelligence agency, says Mullah Dadullah was killed Saturday night in Helmand province.

Ansari says Dadullah was killed during a military operation, and his body has been moved to neighboring Kandahar province.

Kandahar Governor Asadullah Khalid reportedly showed Dadullah’s remains to several local journalists.

  1. The Taliban expected to have totally overun Helmand province and owned it by now and from what I can guess, since they’ve been getting their butts handed to them, good old Dadullah figured he’d make the trek into Helmand to show his boys how it’s done! HaHaHa. Say goodnight, Dadullah….Nexxxxxxxxxt!
