Mullah Omar is the leader of the former Taliban regime in Afghanistan who sheltered Osama bin-Laden and his al Qaida network there in the years before the September 11, 2001, terror attacks.
An Afghani citizen, Mullah Omar is a tall man with black hair and blind in one eye from a shrapnel wound. While the Taliban regime has been removed from power, Mullah Omar remains at large and represents a continuing threat to peace in the region.
The Rewards for Justice program is offering a reward of up to ten million dollars for information leading to Mullah Omar's arrest or prosecution.
The U.S. guarantees that all reports will be investigated and the identity of all informants will be kept confidential. If appropriate, the U.S. is prepared to protect informants by relocating them.
