Taliban leaders at odds over make-up of new Afghan government

A major row has erupted between leaders of the Taliban over the make-up of the group's new government in Afghanistan.
 
Senior Taliban officials told the BBC the argument between the group's co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar and a Cabinet member happened at the presidential palace.
 
There have been unconfirmed reports of disagreements within the Taliban's leadership since Mr. Baradar disappeared from public view in recent days.
 
These have been officially denied.
 
The Taliban seized control of Afghanistan last month, and have since declared the country an "Islamic Emirate". 
 
Their new interim Cabinet is entirely male and made up of senior Taliban figures, some of whom are notorious for attacks on US forces over the last two decades.
