Taliban fears over young recruits attracted to ISIS

Taliban fears over young recruits attracted to Isis in Afghanistan | World news | The Guardian:
The rapid and dramatic victories clocked up by Isis in Iraq, Syria and Libya have attracted some young men with specific grievances against government or foreign forces, who simply want the strongest possible allies.
Others seem drawn by the novelty of an upstart force, the Taliban veteran said, or by the apparently deep pockets of a group that boasts laptops, benevolent funds to help fighters’ families when in need and pick-up trucksinstead of the Taliban’s more modest motorbikes.
