Taliban begin political talks amid protests

The Taliban on Wednesday began political consultations with officials of the previous regime amid protests in Nangarhar, Khost and Kunar provinces bordering Pakistan in which two civilians were killed.

The youngest member of the Taliban Peace Council, Anas Haqqani, met former Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Reconciliation Council chief Abdullah Abdullah but there was no word on what was discussed.

Ahead of the talks, Taliban deputy leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar and eight others landed in Kandahar from Qatar on Tuesday.
