Kabul: A number of former Taliban members gathered to mourn the death of the Taliban's supreme commander, Mullah Omar.

Participants of mourning gathering called on the Taliban to leave Pakistan. "May God get us and the Taliban rid of Pakistan," Harakt-e-Inqilab-e-Islami Afghanistan member Sher Mohammad Akhundzada said.

"Following the death of Osama in Pakistan, I asked you [the Taliban] to leave Pakistan," Shura-e-Insijam-e-Ulema-e- Afghanistan member Mufti Abdul Shokor said. Since his being named the new supreme leader of the Taliban, a thirty minute long audio tape of Mullah Akhter Mansoor has been released, in which he called upon the Taliban to be united. Analysts have said the apparent need for this entreaty is indicative of the possible degree of division within the group.

In the tape, Mansoor warns that those trying to exploit the Taliban's current vacuum of power will face severe punishment.
