Taliban leader returns from exile, after group vows to ‘live peacefully’


A Taliban leader returned to Afghanistan after 20 years in exile, after the Islamist group took over the country over the weekend, according to a report.

A Taliban spokesman said on Twitter that Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar and other insurgent group leaders “reached their beloved country” Tuesday afternoon after traveling from Qatar. 

Baradar’s arrival came after the Taliban said at a press conference that they “want to live peacefully” after seizing control of Afghanistan following the withdrawal of US forces from the country.
