ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has released four more Afghan Taliban prisoners, including a former justice minister, said a Pakistani government official on Monday, in another sign that Islamabad is supporting efforts to start formal peace talks with the militant group.

Afghanistan has been pressing Pakistan to free Taliban members who could help promote reconciliation before most NATO combat troops withdraw before the end of 2014.
