A key commander of Taliban radical movement and close relative of Mullah Mohammad Omar, the supreme leader of the outfit, has been killed, a press release of Afghanistan Defense Ministry said Thursday.

"Mullah Brother, a key commander of Taliban, was killed Thursday morning in the southern Helmand province," the short press release said without further details.

Mullah Brother, whose real name has never been disclosed , served as an operational military chief till the ousting of Taliban regime in late 2001. He was a member of Taliban supreme council leading insurgency against Afghan government over the past couple of years.

It would be the third military leaders of Taliban have been killed since the end of last year. Earlier two more Taliban key commanders including Mullah Dadullah and Mullah Akhtar Usmani have been killed in south Afghanistan.
