Pakistan's Taliban have named politician and ex-cricketer Imran Khan as a member of a five-man team to enter into peace talks with the government.

Khan's party strongly favours negotiations, but a statement said that he would probably prefer to assist the peace process in another role.

PM Nawaz Sharif returned to power last May, promising talks with the Taliban.

Deadly attacks have continued and Sharif said this week he was giving peace a last chance by naming a team.


The Taliban said it would consider the offer of talks and has now responded.
