By Jibran Ahmad PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - At the Taliban meeting this week where Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansour was named as the Islamist militant group's new head, several senior figures in the movement, including the son and brother of late leader Mullah Omar, walked out in protest. The display of dissent within the group's secretive core is the clearest sign yet of the challenge Mansour faces in uniting a group already split over whether to pursue peace talks with the Afghan government and facing a new, external threat - Islamic State. Rifts in the Taliban leadership are likely to widen after confirmation this week of the death of elusive founder Omar.
