Afghan Taliban Stage Mass Open-Air Rally


Thousands of people attended a mass gathering of Taliban fighters, addressed by Mullah Mohammad Rasul, one of two rival Taliban leaders following the death of former leader Mullah Omar. The open-air meeting, on November 7, was used to declare Rasul sole leader of the Afghan Taliban -- even as his forces were reported to be fighting the other Taliban faction.
