KABUL - Pakistan will consider freeing the former Afghan Taliban second- -in-command, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, if current releases of lower level insurgents help advance peace efforts, officials from both countries told Reuters on Thursday.

"After releasing 13 Taliban, Pakistan promised to free Mullah Baradar if these releases prove effective in peace negotiations," said a senior Afghan official close to talks between Islamabad and Kabul.
