Mansour will be replaced by Haibatullah Akhunzada, who was named in a United Nations report last year as the Taliban's former chief justice, said Zabihullah Mujahid, the Taliban's main spokesman, in the statement. Sirajuddin Haqqani, head of a feared network blamed for many high-profile bombs attacks in Kabul in recent years, and Mullah Mohammad Yaqoob, son of Taliban founder Mullah Mohammad Omar, will serve as deputies.
