New Taliban Leader Says Insurgency Will Continue

- VOA News,August 2, 2015

The Taliban has released an audio message from new leader Mullah Akhtar Mansoor, intended to reassure Taliban leaders, elders, clerics and scholars that the Taliban jihad will continue until the Islamic system is brought to Afghanistan.

Mansoor said all decisions will be taken in the light of Islamic law, be it war or peace talks, and advised his followers not to pay attention to rumors being spread about the Taliban campaign.

Earlier Saturday the Taliban denied reports of the death of Jalaluddin Haqqani, the founder of the Haqqani network.

Friday the Taliban announced that Haqqani's son, Sirajuddin Haqqani, had been appointed one of two deputies to Mullah Mansoor, the new leader of the militant group.
