Afghanistan: Taliban leader declares group will never bow to America

International Editor

The Taliban’s reclusive leader has declared that the group would never bow to America, even if the US dropped a nuclear bomb on Afghanistan.

But doubts remain about Emir Hibatullah Akhunzada, who was speaking today at a meeting of religious scholars, as he did not appear on camera, and no photos have been released.

Despite today’s address, some Afghans are still unsure whether he is still alive.
