Ex-Taliban leader runs for Afghan presidency

Abdul Salam Rocketi is a former high-level Taliban commander who met Osama bin Laden once, and Taliban leader Mullah Omar several times.

Now, Rocketi has registered to run alongside 43 other candidates in Afghanistan's August presidential election.

As Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr reports from Kabul, Rocketi says he is a changed man.
