Lethal Clashes Between ISIS and Militia Fighters

During a fight with gunmen affiliated with the IS, he said, four members of a militia loyal to Zahir Qadir, deputy speaker of parliament, were taken hostage and beheaded. In revenge, four of five IS gunmen held by Qadir's militia were beheaded, Mujahid said. Their heads were placed on piles of stones along a main road through Achin, he said. It is not unusual for powerful figures in Afghanistan to control personal militias, though the central government and international organizations such as the United Nations have expressed concern about a proliferation of armed groups that are not part of the government's security force.
