Kabul For the last few days in the government of Afghanistan, the market of speculation was hot about Deputy PM Mullah Baradar.

Earlier reports said Faiz Hameed, the head of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence, had reached Kabul after a clash between Baradar and Haqqani-backed groups, in which Baradar was injured.
