The Afghanistan Taliban have condemned an attack by the Pakistani Taliban on a school in Pakistan that killed 141 people on Tuesday.
An apparently errant tweet by the Taliban's spokesman in Afghanistan gave his location as being in neighbouring Pakistan.
At least three policemen were killed Friday when a roadside bomb struck a van in Afghanistan`s Kunar province, an official said.
US soldier Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by the Taliban for five years, appeared smiling alongside a commander from the militant Haqqani network in a photo posted on a Twitter account by a supporter of the Afghan Taliban.
The Afghan Taliban has reportedly said that Pakistan has not freed their former second-in-command, Mullah Baradar as promised and the detained commander`s health is deteriorating in prison.
The Afghan Taliban threatened on Tuesday to behead US troops in revenge for the massacre of 16 Afghan civilians by a lone American soldier in southern Afghanistan.
