Senior Taliban officials told the BBC that a major dispute broke out between Taliban leaders, over the composition of the new government.

They said that an altercation between the group’s co-founder, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, and a member of the cabinet, took place at the presidential palace in Kabul.

There have been unconfirmed reports of rifts within the Taliban leadership since Mr. Baradar disappeared from public exposure in recent days.

A Taliban source told BBC Pashto that Baradar and Khalil-ur-Rehman Haqqani – the minister for refugee affairs and a prominent figure in the hardline Haqqani network – exchanged strong words, while their followers quarreled with each other nearby.
