The Taliban in Afghanistan have confirmed the death of their former leader Mullah Akhtar Mansoor in a US drone strike last week and appointed his successor. Mullah Haibatullah Akhundzada, a prominent religious scholar and deputy to the killed leader, will head the militant movement, which has been in disarray since its founder, Mullah Omar, was proclaimed dead last summer.
