The group had imposed a curfew in Kabul on Thursday, directing citizens to not leave their residences after 9pm except in case of emergency.
The Taliban’s co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar reportedly arrived in Kabul on Saturday for talks with fellow members of the group and other politicians on establishing a new Afghan government.
Baradar arrived in Afghanistan on Tuesday from Qatar, choosing to touch down in the country’s second-biggest city Kandahar the Taliban’s spiritual birthplace.
Within hours of his return, the group announced its rule would be “different” this time. Arrested in Pakistan in 2010, Baradar was kept in custody until pressure from the United States saw him freed in 2018 and relocated to Qatar.
