The Taliban has announced a radical interim government under the leadership of its influential ‘Rahbari Shura’ chief Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund.
UN-banned terrorist Sirajuddin Haqqani is also involved in the interim Taliban government. Sirajuddin Haqqani, the son of Haqqani network founder Jalaluddin Haqqani and globally declared terrorist Sirajuddin Haqqani, has been made the new acting interior minister in the Taliban government.
