Washington: Afghan Taliban head Mullah Akhtar Mansour, killed in a United States (US) drone attack, was carrying a fake passport, confirmed US administration on Tuesday.

“Mansour was having a fake Pakistani passport,” said the deputy spokesman of State Department Mark Toner in a statement and added, “Pakistan needs to do more to root out terrorism using its soil to find refuge.”

“You know, our major concern is that a big threat to our military on the ground of Afghanistan has been removed from the battlefield,” said a senior US official.
