Mullah Abdul Bari (died April 1, 2009(2009-04-01))[1] was alleged to be a Taliban commander, and expert bomb-maker.

According to Australian General Mark Evans:

  • "His weapons of choice were roadside bombs and suicide bombers and his death means that Taliban insurgents operating in the region have lost one of their key facilitators."[1]
  • "Mullah Bari has also been confirmed to have been directly involved in the placement of the improvised explosive devices which have targeted Australian troops."[1]

Another Taliban commander named Mullah Abdul Bari was reported killed in Helmand Province on February 21, 2008.[2][3]
