Taliban ex-Guantanamo detaineesThe Taliban militants group in Afghanistan rejected that the authorities in Qatar have extended travel ban for the group’s senior leaders who were freed from Guantanamo last year.

A statement by the Taliban group said the released Taliban leaders “will live freely anywhere the Islamic Emirate deems necessary in accordance with the agreement.”

“Reports circulated by the media about extension of conditions are untrue while the Islamic Emirate considers all further action by America concerning the stipulations as a violation of the principles of the agreement and international law,” the statement added.

This comes as a US official said earlier this week that the authorities in Qatar have agreed to temporarily extend travel bans on five senior Taliban leaders released last year from the prison at Guantanamo Bay.

The official further added that the ban would remain in place until diplomatic talks for a longer-term solution are completed.

The five senior Taliban leaders – Khairullah Syed Wali Khairkhwa, Mullah Mohamad Fazl, Mullah Norullah Noori, Abdul Haq Wasiq and Mohammad Nabi Omari, who were in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
