美国驻阿富汗大使扎勒米·哈利扎德16日称，基地组织头目本·拉登与阿富汗塔利班领导人奥马尔现在据信都没在阿富汗藏身。外电报道如下：Osama bin Laden and Taliban chief Mullah Mohammed Omar are not believed to be in Afghanistan anymore, the U.S. ambassador said Thursday, raising fresh questions as to the whereabouts of the elusive terror mastermind.
Zalmay Khalilzad, tapped by President Bush to be the next U.S. envoy to Iraq, did not reveal where the two might be hiding or whether his comment was based on new intelligence.
"Mullah Omar is not in Afghanistan. I do not believe that Osama is in Afghanistan," Khalilzad said. His comments at a news conference in Kabul came a day after a purported Taliban commander said the pair were alive and well.
