The Taliban on Thursday confirmed that Mawlawi Rahimullah Haqqani, a high-profile supporter of the group, had been killed in Kabul.

Bilal Karimi, a deputy spokesperson for the Taliban, said that Haqqani was killed through the "cowardly attack of the enemy".

Some sources have said that Haqqani was killed in a suicide attack at his seminary in Kabul.

A video clip published on social media shows that the door and window of a house had been destroyed as a result of this explosion, and people had gathered around a human body, who is said to have been the suicide bomber.

The people were seen kicking and throwing stones at the dead body.
