Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour has probably been killed in a US air strike.

He and another male combatant were targeted as they rode in a vehicle in a remote area of Pakistan close to the Afghan border.

The Pentagon has confirmed it targeted Mansour in strikes but said they were still assessing the results.

Mansour assumed the leadership in July 2015, replacing Taliban founder and spiritual head Mullah Mohammad Omar.
