Exclusive: Walkout at Taliban leadership meeting raises specter of split

Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansour, Taliban militants' new leader, is seen in this undated handout photographBy Jibran Ahmad PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - At the Taliban meeting this week where Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansour was named as the Islamist militant group's new head, several senior figures in the movement, including the son and brother of late leader Mullah Omar, walked out in protest.
