Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansoor became Taliban's new chief last month after the announcement that longtime leader Mullah Omar had been dead for two years.
The announcement sparked a leadership battle. While the Taliban hashes out the dispute over Mansoor's appointment, those loyal to Mansoor on Monday released an in-depth biography of the man. NBC News cannot confirm the veracity of the document's contents as the Taliban's media arm is notoriously unreliable.
According to the bio, Mansoor "speaks less and tries to listen more to other people," he wears "neat and clean clothes" and "is fully conscious of the delicacy and complexity of all contemporary regional and international politics."
