Insurgent leader Pakistan said it released is still in custody, Taliban say

Pakistani officials had said they hoped that the release of Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, who’d been in Pakistani custody since 2010, would help persuade Pakistani insurgents to enter peace talks with the government. But a spokesman for the Afghan Taliban said that Baradar, the deputy to Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Mohammed Omar, remained in custody.
