'ISIS fighters' attack Afghanistan police posts: Officials, South Asia News & Top Stories - The Straits Times
The attacks in Achin were confirmed by the border police commander in eastern Afghanistan, Mohammad Ayoub Hussainkhail.
They came a day after a United Nations report warned that ISIS was making inroads in Afghanistan, winning over a growing number of sympathisers and recruiting followers in 25 of the country's 34 provinces.
Afghan security forces told UN sanctions monitors that about 10 per cent of the Taleban insurgency are ISIS sympathisers, according to the report by the UN's Al-Qaeda monitoring team.
The militant group has been trying to establish itself in Afghanistan.
