Baradar leaves Kabul

Clashes have broken out between Taliban leaders in the Afghan capital, Kabul. They are embroiled in controversy over the formation of a new government. As a result, Mullah Abdul Gani Baradar, one of the top leaders and co-founders of the Taliban, has left Kabul.

The British media quoted senior Taliban leaders as saying in a report on Wednesday (September 15th). The Taliban leaders said the formation of the country’s new interim government was the subject of a debate at the presidential palace in Kabul between Mullah Abdul Gani Baradar and a minister in the new government.

On August 15, the Taliban seized control of Kabul. The group then declared Afghanistan an Islamic emirate.
