an Islamic fundamentalist militant organization formed by Afghan fighters in the early 1990s. The group ruled Afghanistan from 1996 until the U.S. invasion in 2001 and harbored al-Qaeda during that time. Many Taliban leaders then relocated to Pakistan, though the Taliban continues to mount an insurgency against the U.S.-backed government in Afghanistan. Its membership is primarily Pashtun.
