Official says Taliban to soon declare Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan

A Taliban official says the group will soon declare the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan from the presidential palace in the capital, Kabul.

That was the name of the country under the Taliban government ousted by US-led forces after the September 11, 2001, attacks. The official speaks on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to brief media.
