MIRAMSHAH/LADHA: The infighting between two factions of the outlawed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan has prompted intervention by the TTP shura which is reported to have appointed Sheikh Khalid Haqqani as acting emir of the TTP’s Mehsud circle of South Waziristan Agency (SWA).

The report, however, has been dismissed by another influential Taliban leader.

According to the report, the shura announced a two-month ceasefire between the warring factions.
