Pakistan released its highest-ranking Afghan Taliban prisoner on Saturday in an effort to jump-start Afghanistan's struggling peace process, Pakistani officials said, but some doubt he will make much of a difference.
Afghan government representatives have met with a top-ranking Taliban member in his prison cell in Pakistan, an official said Sunday, suggesting a small step toward reopening stalled peace talks with the insurgent group.
The Taliban's top military commander has been arrested in a joint CIA-Pakistani operation in Pakistan in a major victory against insurgents as U.S. troops push into their heartland in southern Afghanistan, officials said.
