Taliban co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar arrived in Kabul on Saturday for talks on establishing a new "inclusive" government in Afghanistan, a senior official said. Other senior Taliban leaders seen in the capital in recent days include Khalil Haqqani -- one of America's most wanted terrorists with a $5 million bounty on his head.

As per news report of NDTV, Pro-Taliban social media feeds showed Haqqani meeting Gulbuddin Hekmatyar -- a former bitter rival during the brutal civil war of the early 1990s, but still influential in Afghan politics. A senior Taliban official told AFP that Baradar would meet "jihadi leaders and politicians for an inclusive government set-up". Baradar arrived in Afghanistan last Tuesday from Qatar, choosing to touch down in the country's second-biggest city Kandahar -- the Taliban's spiritual birthplace. Within hours of his return, the group announced its rule would be "different" this time. The Taliban have said they want this iteration of their government to be "inclusive", but have given few details of who it would include.
