Dueling Afghan leaders both declare themselves president
Afghanistan's incumbent president and his main political challenger have both sworn themselves in as president. The rival inauguration ceremonies were held at the exact same time Monday. That's thrown the next and crucial step in the U.S.-Taliban peace deal into chaos.
Washington's peace envoy was reportedly going back and forth between the two Afghan rivals into the early hours Monday. The Afghan government and the Taliban are supposed to hold talks on a road map for the country's future. But the disputed election means the Afghan government side appears unable to present a united front.
